David Johnson and Susan P. Crawford have written an article
asserting that the real victim of the vote-oriented
bargaining going on right now (in connection with the
structure of the future Names Council) may be ICANN's own

artificially-defined constituencies may undermine ICANN's
ability to demand deference from governments. And even a
widely-accepted compromise on the structure of the Names
Council, crafted late at night in Shanghai, will not solve
the problem of establishing ICANN's legitimacy in the eyes
of those who have not signed up to be bound by rules made
by the Board.
