Danny and all,

  Additionally, is there any good reason also why the GA 
independantly should rely on volunteers or free services
such as language translation?  I say no, even though the 
GA has no money.  There are of course, many lame, but good
sounding excuses.  As Roberto works for ICANN, it is reasonable
to assume regardless of how prolifically he may protest, that
he could care less if the GA ever is self supporting.  And in
fact in many obvious and already stated ways, it is to ICANN's
advantage that the GA has no money and/or is self sufficient.
