Bill - 

  My question was the one you state above: do you feel that those with 
  larger invoices under the fee schedule proposals with much higher 
  fee categories would seek a corresponding larger say in how ARIN is 

  If you have no interest in the question, that's fine.  If you'd like
  to express a view, that's also fine.  It is simply a potential factor
  in consideration of the proposals, and hence worth raising.
