The funny thing is that, more or less at the same time, I've received a 
message from an officer of an ISOC chapter, saying "why is ICANN doing 
this - we don't need the At Large, it should be the European council of 
ISOC chapters to do this".

The truth is that we are trying to create an open mechanism where 
everyone - ISOC chapters, other organizations, and individuals - can 
participate. If only certain kinds of organizations use it, then of 
course they will dominate the mechanism; but, once the gates are open, 
the fault of this only lies with those who don't bother to participate.
