Excellent point.  In the ARIN region, we recognize "staff" to be those employed by ARIN 
(including myself), otherwise you are a community members.  There are a small number 
of cases where we distinguish between ARIN's elected Board of Trustees and others in 
the community, for example, our policy development  process notes that proposals may 
come from "anyone in the global Internet community _except_ for members of the ARIN 
Board of Trustees or the ARIN staff.

Is there a particular suggestion that you would propose?
