I can only speak for NCUC.  I raised the issue the other day among our  
leadership and we only had responses from two of the nine people  
(councilors plus newly elected Exec. Comm), and they had somewhat  
different perspectives, so there was nothing that could be called a  
consensus position.  At the same time, as of yesterday morning when I  
got a message from Kristina indicating CSG support and asking for our  
view, I'd not seen any discussion on the list with other SGs  
expressing a preference.  So it seemed unlikely there was time to go  
back to our people spread around the world in different time zones,  
arrive at a clear position, and then engage other SGs on the list and  
get consensus before the random selection was to kick in.

Would be good to hear.  But we'd agreed an approach and Avri followed  
it, so on process grounds this discussion is a bit puzzling.
