Thanks Olivier,

Just to be clear, the ALAC Rules of Procedure 
(section 9.2 to be specific) say "Anyone who will 
or has a chance to meet eligibility requirements 
after the next ICANN Annual General Meeting can 
be nominated; it is not necessary for nominees to 
meet eligibility requirements at the moment of 
the nomination, but, if elected, they will have 
to meet them before taking their seat."

I don't recall the origin of the expression "or 
has a chance to meet eligibility requirements", 
but it did seem tailor made for your situation 
and was the rationale allowing me to nominate you.
