I'm against it as written.

To keep my rationale short, I'll refer to two messages by Owen 
Delong, paraphrasing:

1) A community networks should be defined by having a status such as 501c3.

2) The example 501c3 should not have been mentioned.

Reading the proposal now, I would consider my local cable operator 
(Northern Virginia Cox) to qualify as a community network.  I don't 
need or expect answer to this on PPML, but after reading the 
discussion and proposal - what's an example of a "community network", 
as in "a real life example?"  And "why would they need special 
dispensation?"  How do they differ from an LIR/ISP?

Never confuse activity with progress.  Activity pays more.
