Oh, and let's not forget that ICANN's governance model means that those who buy and sell domains are already well represented at the policy table.
Nobody else speaks purely for those impacted by ICANN decisions without contributing to its finances, so the onus is on At-Large to speak for the otherwise voiceless.

It is often raised within ICANN that industry advicates are end users too.
I find that position unconvincing, it just becomes another channel for lobbying (or causing diversion from what is otherwise broad consensus).
Such blatant "dual-dipping" is but one of the sources of ICANN's own credibility problems.
