The ALAC proposal (as I understood it) didn't guarantee the public interest

For example, in the case of .pharmacy, it would have allowed any dodgy
cross-border outfit selling drugs without a license to get a seat on the
TLDs PAC.  In fact, there could be many such rogue pharmacies "stacking"
such an Advisory Council.

BTW, .pharmacy already has an Advisory Group in place.
