What I am saying is that we do ourselves a disservice by not developing 
some common texts which we can agree will be articulated by someone to 
speak on behalf of the whole only to the extent of those positions.  
Beyond that everyone remains the spokesperson of their (or their 
communities) interest.   For example, I still strongly encourage the 
development of a statement (even if its just a summary and status 
report) to be presented at the IANA transition panel at IGF...

If the press wants contacts, it should be provided with a list of the entire committee, with email addresses for all and designated positions (chair, vice-chairs, etc.) and communities (IETF, GNSO, etc.)  As a matter of practical reality, most press with questions about the official business of the ICG will contact the chair, but there is no reason to limit who they can contact as long as we all understand that we are speaking for ourselves and not for the group.
