Just add that ALAC recognizes the support relationship among stewards and itself is reciprocal and interdependent, and you've got it.

The conclusions I draw myself from this suggest that At-Large needs a massive re-think of how it treats outreach. Rather than brochures and CROPP and Fellows and endless (mostly futile) campaigns to get more outsiders to get involved, I think the stewards need to do more to directly address the needs of the billions. If we are doing our jobs at that -- trying to affect policy while facing inside ICANN, while creating plain-language education programs to explain those policies while facing outside -- the stewards will find us without much effort.
