I think that the real change must come from the marginal participants.  We will 
soon see what the real antagonists will do.  Will the international naysayers 
from IGF and this ethereal CS step up and participate. Or will they continue to 
hide behind "lack of accountability" and not being duly crowned with authority. 
Will they stop whining and start contributing.
And will the folks who like to talk about "noise to signal" ratios begin to 
create some signals of their own. Or will they continue to complain about ICANN 
inaction on the one hand and the filth of those who tirelessly do in fact hold 
ICANN publicly accountable.
How they now handle the GA will very quickly be a tell tale sign of intentions. 
No not just ICANN but how the international communities relate with and work 
with those who lack club endorsements.  Those without pedigree or University or 
global society status will either be continued to be shunned or they will be 
embraced.  We shall soon see if this is to continue to be an elitist 
foundational money caste system or in fact an effort for individual human 
rights to information and access to knowledge. Obama's people have deftly put 
the shoe and the onus where it belongs.  Not in US govt but on a stodgy 
international good old boy network. Will they rise to the challenge?

Rod Beckstrom made quite a long comment on the ICANN's website about 
Affirmation of Commitments

"All the reporting is to the world; that's the real change. "
