    -- need to emphasize geographic and cultural 
    -- consider the creation of an ALAC

-- discussion about adding geographical and cultural diversity 
   "in all parts of ICANN structure" (proposal by Andy Mueller-
   Maguhn), "emphasize fundamental importance of" (Jonathan 
   Cohen"), "devise and incorporate specific measures
   to ensure, to the extent feasible" (Sang-Hyon Kyong),
   already contained in Blueprint -- e.g. "at all levels 
   of policy development and decision-making" (Lyman Chapin),
   important to mention it (Hans Kraaijenbrink), strike

   to be at least  partially also reaction to some external 
   political pressures; notes that there has been too much
   emphasis on seizing representation instead; too much emphasis 
   on symmetry, e.g. between SOs. Express reservations, not
   prepared to vote on final solution with certain elements: 
   Board too large, Board composition still excessive 
   representative model, should have more courage for NomCom
   to avoid horse-reading.
-- Jonathan Cohen: While ensuring that nobody feels left out, 
   we must avoid horse-trading, gridlock and balkanizing the
   Board. Will vote in favour.
-- Nii Quaynor: Wish those commenting would propose an
-- Amadeu Abril I Abril: Would prefer NomCom to be obliged
   to consult with groups.
-- Helmut Schink: Will vote in favour. Some issues are still
