Well, I would find it useful in helping me to understand whether what he
describes is an outrageous limitation on the prerogatives of my SO that
fundamentally threatens the bottom-up multistakeholder system we all
love and cherish, or a vital check on a potential loophole that would
enable the unlimited expansion of ICANN's mission, without which
safeguard we risk the death of the diverse, polycentric multistakeholder
system we all love and cherish.

I heard your view before.

If the policy requires a bylaws change however (and I can't imagine why
it would, which is why I'm asking) then surely it's at least possible
that the rest of the community have an interest in that aspect of it?
Depending on the nature of the bylaws change, I suppose. I'll suspect
I'll know more clearly what I think when Chris explains what's on his mind.
