I second that. I just joined the list and I hope to be a vigorous participant.

AFAIK there isn't another one like it.  1net works if all constituencies (or whatever you want to call them) participate.  So far I've seen representatives of civil society causes and people from the Internet technical community make postings, but no one from business (I don't think we expected governments to engage at this level).  So I think that you are raising relevant questions, and I hope that the business sector engages soon.
