Fully agree with Milton here. The *real* work will be done by the various communities in a bottom-up, consensus manner. The function of the ICG is to coordinate and facilitate. The role of the ICG chair(s) is coordinate the logistics of the ICG, not influence the substance of the recommendation. It's an administrative function that requires hard work and the ability to keep our trains running on time. Keith

I agree with Wolf. I can't help but think that this proposal, and more importantly the level of priority that is being given to the structure of chairs, is based on the false premise that the ICG is the basic drafter or developer of the IANA transition proposals. It is not. If you want proper representative of regional variations or "citizenships" in this transition, you'd better focus on getting people from those regions and "citizenships" involved in proposal development.** I also detect a certain tendency here to develop positions on ICG issues among our own silos rather than seeking consensus and ideas among the ICG members themselves. Both tendencies are counterproductive IMHO.
** Once you do that, you will probably learn that the correlation between region, citizenship and specific positions re IANA proposals is a random one, too.
