I have a question.
It seems to me there are two major ways MSism can operate, plus
hybrids (SG = stakeholder group.)
1. Each SG is responsible for recommending policy within the scope of
its own mission probably to an executive which ratifies and
So, a GAC might recommend on how govts react to some sovereignty
issue and an ISP or RIR SG might on IPv4/v6 transition mechanics.
2. All SGs vote (or similar) on most everything -- they operate more
like political parties in a parliamentary system. Once enfranchised
they vote &c on most anything.
Hybrids might involve some issues being assigned (by whom?)
specifically to certain SGs for various reasons, probably specialty of
expertise or interest, and other issues voted &c on by all SGs.
Another hybrid might be one where specialty issues are studied and
recommended by specific SGs and then presented for vote &c by all SGs
perhaps with some opportunity for re-write and amendment.
I suspect people are imagining a hybrid solution but the devil is in
the details particularly where issues cross SG boundaries and how
participation is gated.
Are there terms for this sort of taxonomy?
