Just to make sure people don't take this for granted - I don't know 
if this is the best way for election. I have some experience with the 
first "democratic" election, when I was chairing the MITF for Eastern 
Europe. If the proposed elections are like that, we'd better not have 
any. An article in a magazine can drive people to vote. Or a matter 
of national pride... This is not a solution, at all.
There was a statement by Joi Ito, I think, who said that the 
registrants actually seem not to be represented not only on the 
Board, but actually in the whole ICANN process. But the commercial 
registrants are there, live and kicking. So, it's not that easy, as 
to say, 'restore rights to the At-Large'. I've been there, I don't 
want to witness again such "democratic" elections.

Will write more on your other issue.
