First: I note that it is thus the case that the current bylaws do not have
the proposed restriction.

Consequently, at the time the member of the gTLD constituency appointed
three representatives it was entirely within its by-law given rights to do
so.  And thus the rejection of those representatives from that meeting was
improper and a violation of ICANN's then existing, and still existing

Second: I question how this "evident consensus" was ascertained. There has
been no "consensus count" or clearly stated question on this matter.

I do suspect that if such a consensus count were to be made, the answer
would be conform to the asserted consensus.

However, I must object to a bald assertion of "consensus" without there
being a clearly stated, and focused question placed before the e-mail
