Ah, Roelof I see. You really have a pretty serious misconception of what this controversy is about. As Becky noted,

Perhaps if you understand better you will change your mind. AS you can clearly see, the GAC has already had a _unilateral_ say because of its ability to force the board to the negotiating table. NO OTHER SO/AC has that capability. Can you explain to me (and to all others on the list) how you can say they don't have a say?
Why are you supporting two bites at the apple (other than the fact that as a ccTLD who is not regulated by ICANN at all, it doesn't affect you in any way?
