I have been told that this issue is actually being debated as an issue
internal to LACRALO, and I'm personally hesitant to get NA involved. The
Caribbean contingent is not known for its shyness, and will no doubt make
its interests well known.

In casual conversations I have been asked for my personal opinion, if I
would foresee any hostility or opposition *if* some LAC members wanted to
join NA. I replied that I did not believe any such hostility would exist --
but I clearly said that as representative of nothing beyond my own

I'm very conscious of the fine line between meddling and wanting to be
helpful. Maybe I'm being a little too self-silencing, but the rest of the
ICANN world already sees itself as getting lectured to by North Americans.
IMO, if we have something to say about someone else's regional business it
had *better* be both novel and useful.
