Route servers are not a requirement hence no ASN needed.

Hum.. so an IIX w/o an ASN has a vested interest in peering?  How does that work?

wrt "interested parties"...

Does this sound much different that stock classes & voting your "A" shares differently than your "B" shares?

thought experiment:
an entity has one or more ASNs assigned, either through an RIR or from private ASN space.
Each ASN represents a unique Peering Policy (thats what ASNs do).

Posit one vote per policy or vote per ASN.

In the event that an entity has multiple ASNs/policies, all represented by the same natural person, it would seem prudent to restrict the natural person to a single vote, regardless of the number of ASNs they represent.

Are you suggesting that instead of the natural/legal entity distinction, that a better way would be to have a single vote per registered entity regardless of the number of ASNs/policies registered in peeringDB?

Think that might work.

I think it’s more about not disenfranchising entities that do not have an ASN such as some IXs.

I would also like to see us avoid disenfranchising participating and active individuals who are not
representative of an ORG.
