I believe the ALM should elect nine members.
Internet privatization in 1998 was based on an agreement reached after
extensive public and private negotiations among all concerned
stakeholders. The condition for privatization was a set of bylaws that
provided balanced representation between users and experts/industry reps.
Although I have some personal doubts about this policy, because it awarded
special rights to expert/industry representatives, I recognize it resulted
from the most open process we are likely to see. I think we must abide by
that foundational policy.
To reject the conditions for Internet privatization would seem to cast
doubt on the whole notion of an ICANN (or any "newco").
