Agreed, I think it is a fairly cynical post.

However, if what RW is reporting, that ICANN is insisting on the GoK
paying for the Gala Dinner when in the past ICANN has paid for this is
not reasonable (unless the BoD has decided that in future, hosts will
pay for this event or something like that.)

Having the meeting at UNEP instead of in the center of the city seems
reasonable, but I have heard nothing to this effect.
