    You said in your explanation: "The point of this amendment is to secure
    continuous and effective representation for the NCC in the event of a
    resignation." That is, the point is to deal with the succession problem.
    As you agree, it doesn't do that, in addition to not curing AIDs.

    No -- that is not my intention. I don't want to force people to run
    with alternates -- it would mean an otherwise strong candidacy could be
    seriously weakened if the candidate couldn't find a good alternate, or
    chose an unpopular alternate...

    Moreover, I think that the alternate proposal has been pretty thoroughly
    dismissed, and I don't want to try to sneak in some ersatz variation.
    Nii's proposal to have succession go down through the adcom is a simple,
    common sense method that ICANN won't reject.

    It may be useful to summarize the succession process for the other

    ccTLD: adcom selects short term replacement; election must be held for
    vacancy of 3 months or longer

    Business: Not addressed in their charter, as near as I can tell

    gTLD: N/A

    ISP: Not addressed, but have staggered terms and elections every 8 months

    Registrars: Not addressed.

    IPC: President and officers of IPC pick a short term replacement;
    election required if more than a 6 month vacancy.
