As far as 5 goes, I think that besides ISOC-AU, which is really supposed to be
the rep for this group, a number journalists like me will probably slither
their way onto this list and keep an eye out for decisions that will cause
michief and trouble out there in User Land. The journos should lurk wherever
possible, I suppose, but we'll be watching.

(BTW, I'm writing a feature on ADNA for the July/August issue of Internet
World. If anyone desperately needs to have their position put on the record
about ADNA, and I haven't talked to them already, email me privately.)
