I think a good current example is the EPDP (on the Temporary
Specification for gTLD Registration Data) that has been characterized
as a battle between the "Surveillance Caucus" (IPC, BC, GAC, SSAC and
ALAC) and the "Privacy Caucus" (RySG, RrSG, ISPCP and NCSG), both
sides claiming to represent the interests of users/consumers.
