Malcolm, this reminds me that I have echoed Avri¹s sentiment that the
public interest is something that can only be discovered through the
bottom up multistakeholder process.  Rather than take out references to
³the public interest² - which appears repeatedly in the AoC - I¹m going to
take a stab at adding that concept.

Thanks for reminding me.
