I would suspect that the only "real" power of the ADNA will be
to revoke the rights of an organisation to administer a second
level domain.

We don't meet the requirements to become voting members. eg: we are
for profit organisations, and our goals are to make a profit.  Under
my proposed document, applicants need to be not for profit associations
whose primary objectives are Internet related.

We could become non voting members of course, which will probably
carry some benefits (possibly a newsletter describing all the
recent decisions, minutes etc of the board and full membership).

Robert Elz can presumably delegate his authority to whomsoever he
pleases.  IANA will happily allow Australia to do as Australia
pleases, -provided- that there is community concensus. This is
why we need anyone that objects to this idea to come forward now
and let us see how we can achieve a solution that everyone is happy
with (well, at least not totally opposed to anyway).
