[At-Large] "Business" users (was Re: FW: Our choice for the ICANN Board)

It has been my, perhaps naive, idea that At-Large represents Internet users
as a whole in ICANN matters as a whole, including  interests that are beyond
the GNSO. Thus there is not a conflict of an ALS such as ISOC-NY
participating more directly in the GNSO via the NCUC, but also interacting
more widely via At-Large.

That broad tent of individual users I would consider includes even
contracted parties included as well as registrants and end-users. At-large's
role is to look out for everybody and particularly those that are
under-represented in the GNSO, which some might argue, registrants currently
are. If that's the case we should be looking to redress that, while keeping
in mind it is always At-Large's responsibility to speak up for end-users.
