I recall there being quite a bit of work by the voting members of the GNSO
Council before a working group is chartered, as well as restrictions on the
choice of chair and Council liaison.

I'm relieved that in my absence problems correct themselves.

True, but you did offer your view that "... It converts every issues into
a dialogue between the Board and GAC/Governments." This is a pretty serious
claim. Rather than restate, slightly less grandly, the import of GAC advice,
your supporting arguement appears to be everyone is meaningfully inside the
GNSO policy tent. If true, I'm surprised.
