Nii, Daniel and all,

I think we should encourage a structure that gets the maximum benefit from
the input of individuals.
If these individuals are leaders of organisations, so much the better. 
Do they get more votes, no. Are their idea's listened to better, yes.

If they want to get more votes, all they need to do is to encourage their
members to become individual ICANN members.
Their votes remain free individual votes.
