Danny and all former DNSO GA members or other interested

  Some of what Milton is suggesting and/or recommending here our members

agree with and have stated so on a number of occasions.  In particular
unstacking or the flawed constituency deck with respect to collapsing
business users constituency with the intellectual property constituency.

  However what Milton "Seems" to be suggesting with respect to
stakeholders/users is not expectable under the GNSO flawed
structure.  The ALAC is a closed and non transparent structure
as well and is not open to any and all interested parties and/or
stakeholders/users.  Hence leaving it a a "Club" and not a structure
representative of ANY interested stakeholders/user.
