In reviewing the materials for the meeting, there does indeed seem to be a presumption
that a multistakeholder approach is the appropriate model for conducting the discussions
(for example, one can look at the meeting title itself)   If you have a significant concern with 
the NetMundial structure, that's probably something that would be best to take up with the 

I'll note that 1net discussion list is trying to catalyze community-wide efforts "towards the 
evolution of global multistakeholder Internet cooperation", so it also might be predisposed 
towards such multistakeholder approaches... 

Do you know of many folks who are interested in discussion of non-multistakeholder 
approaches to this problem?  Perhaps if you could write up an alternative proposal, we
