SO: I can understand and agree with not having a position in both ALAC and
NCUC at the same time as that will indeed be double deep, but I don't think
it is unfair to have a position in one and be a member in the other. That
said, in reality, let's face it, the structural set-up of ICANN community
is unfair by default.
