[council] Some initial thoughts on GNSO review

Hello All,

Some of the questions I have in terms of the GNSO constituency structure

- should some constituencies merge to form larger constituencies with
more participation?

- should there be additional constituencies to cover viewpoints that are
not currently being addressed  
(e.g application developers - such as browsers, email that are affected
by GNSO decisions)?

- how should companies that have a variety of interests engage with the
GNSO structure?
(e.g Melbourne IT is a registrar, provides other Internet services, is a
business user of the Internet, is concerned about protection of its
intellectual property, and provides services to assist corporates to
protect their online brands - thus it could conceivably join 3 of the
constituencies.    There are staff (and divisions of staff) at Melbourne
IT that would have different interests, and thus may want to become
involved in constituencies that match their interest.)
