I am not commenting on the substance of your e-mail where you raise some interesting points for discussion, I just wish to correct one thing. You DO have the right to vote as an individual. They are accepting both individual and ALS opinions on this so feel free to fire away with your opinions!

I am not an ALS rep, and just an individual member of an ALS but I do not think supporting this letter is a good idea.
I think we should concentrate on the issues related to supporting less well off groups getting an application for drastically reduced fees and with support than on a plan that predominantly supports businesses who want to get multiple TLDs on the cheap so that they can corner the raw resources of less developed economies - (TLDs in local languages and scripts) based on a single ASCII application.
I also think its claim that the expenses for ICANN would be the same is un substantiated.
So I do not have a vote, but I do hope you do not sign on to this letter.
