That assumption is correct. :-)

According to a stewardship transition document there are 13 
GAC, GSNO, gTLD Registries and ccNSO.  The draft charter mentions 
that the Functions are divided into three main categories.  It looks 
like the theory of those who came up with the plan is that a person 
will be able to find a representative in one of those communities to 
represent his or her interests.  The draft charter also mentions that 
there are relevant community processes and it says that the 
coordination group may refer input it receives to the relevant 
community discussion.

Let's assume that you belong to the numbers community and you have an 
interest in names.  I guess that you could contact a representative 
for advice.

One definition of conflict of interest is "when a person has separate 
duties to act in the best interest of two or more clients in relation 
to the same or related matter, and those duties conflict, or there is 
a significant risk that those duties may conflict".  I would be 
increasing the risk by getting involved in a discussion about the 
numbers process.
