i agree - i think we can quite comfortably be a single proposer - but 
have committment from as many stakeholder reps as possible..  and i 
think meryem's start is a good one

>- CS: one of the IGC coordinators
>- MAG/Secretariat: Nitin Desai / Markus Kummer (ask Desai first, of  course)
>- Business: ICC rep.
>- Gov: Janis Karklins
>- IGO: ITU rep.
>- (if felt needed, but I don't think it is) Tech: ICANN rep.

- or 'internet' community, isoc for example - i'd also like to see 
regional representation is possible (the NRO would be good..)

>The format of the workshop should leave most of the time for 
>open  discussion with participants, i.e. 5 mn given to each panelist 
>to  open the discussion (assessment / improvement) and then open discussion.


parminder - why not draft something quite simple, by way of 
invitation and a brief outline of the workshop and possible 'running 
order' - and our key objectives..  and send to representatives of the 
stakeholders (once agreed)

and let everyone know all others who have been invited..
