And in addition, as it is getting confusing to keep the different "working efforts" clear, just to note that the Cross Community Working Group /ICANN established by the community during the Recent ICANN meeting has 3-4 participants from each SG/Constituency. 

The work of that group is focused on discussions within ICANN's existing community where certainly CC's and Registries are well represented. 

As Internet governance discussions, debates, and concerns are about more than ICANN, as we all know,  I look forward to broader discussions. 

And let me wish all a happy holiday season w friends and family. 

I will have limited online access so may be delayed in replying to any responses, for which I apologize,

The ICANN divisions of businesses don't necessarily need to be reproduced in larger IG industry groupings - and in the end the tent needs to be bigger and broader, ensuring representation externally composed of and chosen from representatives from across the spectrum. Again IMHO.

 Sometimes technical is also including. But many of the infrastructure providers, including registries (ccTLDs and gTLDs), registrars, DNS providers and ISPs are left out of the mix.

For the most part, in the larger scheme of things, aren't they, for the 
most part, businesses. I would think that at the scope of 1net, 
business would include all of these as sub-groupings and would need to 
deal internally with that diversity.

This is the same way that CS is now grappling with the problem of trying 
to be inclusive of all perspectives and grouping of organized civil 
society. Etc.
