Further, there may be real benefit in defining the ICANN Community as a
legal entity in that it would give SOAC  a separate visibility as the
entity that ICANN corporate is accountable to.

The more I think about it, the appealing it seems.

>From the ATRT perspective, we would need to explore whether it would
require any modification to the AOC- bylaw import.  Partly this would
depend on what sort of internal structure the ICANN SOAC entity adopted
and what powers it held.
