 That is why:

" The Advisory Council is to act on behalf of the membership on all  
issues including, but not limited to:

_ Registry goals
_ Future funding
_ Allocation policy guidelines
_ Training
_ Nominations for Advisory Council
_ Database maintenance
_ Registry procedures "


"ARIN members will nominate candidates for the the Advisory Council."

This allows:

"The point has also been made that the management of the IP space  
should be put in the hands of those that depend on it - the users.  
Whether those users are ISPs, corporate entities, universities,  
etc., they should all play a role."

BTW, let's move this to the NAIPR list.
