    I think that the status should be "voting member" and "non-voting member". The word "observer" implies that a person cannot vote and also cannot share thoughts with the constituency.

    > We understand that many subgroups have separate interests and a separate
    > voice from their parent organizations. Those subgroups are welcome to

    This also are non.voting members

    And then quality of observer can be granted to organizations and people who belongs to other constituencies or that are not neither voting and non-voting member in order that they receive the postings of this list but they cannot participate in the discussions (neither vote, of course). The only thing they should do is to fill a form with their data (because I am sure that we want to know who are the ones who are observing us...right?)
