Dear Mihajlo, All,

Thanks a lot for a prompt response, and very important points.

While leaving it to the SEEDIG respective community to further brainstorm
on this, I will just say that the experience of some of the NRIs and the
IGF is to give to the Hosts the role of observers. It could be also to
think about the role of advisors, as you said, with keeping a clear
distinction between the role of the members of the EC and the Hosts

Best regards,
