I'm not sure that such an introductory letter needs much explanation, let
alone diagrams. We're simply indicating "A forum to represent the public
interest within ICANN currently exists, if you're genuinely interested in
hearing that PoV".

The mere awareness -- especially if we get on a mailing list to participate
in future solicitations of comment -- is a major step. If a Congressperson
wants to peek inside the sausage factory we can give offer as much (or as
little) detail as necessary.

Besides, this is the US Congress within an amosphere of political
exceptionalism. Any interest in the geographical diversity of At-Large
(IMO) would be accidental.
