Judith, for the record, the for formal Liaison 
are all either designated by the ICANN Bylaws, or 
the rules of the target groups as being a single position.

I really think we need to de-couple positions 
such as these from "people getting involved". 
Most of these positions are filled by people who 
have been involved for quite some time - they are 
not entry level positions. It is an important distinction.
