The current 3.2.1 does not limit it to individuals, it says it is open to *everyone* including individuals.  However, it does not say that ENTITIES are prohibited from participation in that capacity.

Indeed, there is precedent for this – Go back to any video of any PDP meeting and individuals have come to the microphone stating “I am so and so and I am here in my personal capacity”, or “I am so and so and I represent X”

The moment you say everyone without limitation as is stated below, this I would argue is certainly inclusive of legal entities (human or otherwise), that wish to participate in that capacity.

> You are right – proxies aren’t allowed at PDP – except in this case, they are not proxies.  I am the direct administrative contact for those organisations and hence I speak for each of them, one organisation at a time.

Participation in PDP discussions is by individual and not by organization. Hence the direct administrative contact role you have for organizations would be irrelevant in the policy discussions.

 Section 3.2.1 of the PDP says:



All policies are developed in an open forum in which anyone may participate. There are no qualifications for participation.


*Co-chairs should correct me if I'm wrong*.
