  The problem here Mark is that most universities are NOT noncommercial
in fact.  Hence they do NOT strictly qualify as a noncommercial entity.  This
is not to say that the  NCDNHC cannot jury rig the membership requirements
to allow for universities to be part of the  NCDNHC however....  But in
reality, universities belong in another type of constituency, such as
a non-profit constituency perhaps...

  This also points up another problem with the ICANN's oversite, or lack
thereof of their own questionable "Constituency Model" for the DNSO...
