FWIW, I am in full agreement with Avri on this. Though unconnected to the
current subject, as I have indicated in the past, I am not sure the
community powers as proposed in the current 3rd proposal will adequately

making and I just hope our intent of building a better ICANN would be
experienced. Ofcourse the intent is most likely share by all.
