Understood, and I for one appreciate the greater openness the ITU has shown
in the last few years.

However, contrast this one nation-one vote, limited access to documents
style with the truly open, transparent bottom up process that we will use
this week in Khartoum @ AfriNIC17.

I can (and have) proposed policies that will be discussed this week, and
they may even be adopted.  I am not a government nor do I represent a large
company, just myself.  It is this kind of openness that has built the
Internet we have today.
