A lot of what Jim presented has also been discussed on amfone.net.

You said: "The comments about no ARRL input to the restriction seems to
fly in the face of what Paul 'VJB has reported hearing from the Mexican
rep (possibly others?) confirming Rinaldo's push for it."
ARRL's President's letter dated November 17, 2007, seems to indicate the
Mexican rep's statements were taken out of context. Rinaldo, as secretary
of the committee to take the already in existence Region 1 band plan and
shape it for Region 2 with regional differences taken into account,
probably gathered up all the committee's comments and recommendations,
and prepared the final document for the IARU members. Depending on
committee protocol, he may have been the one who actually presented it
before all the IARU members.

I see no conspiracy here at least not from the ARRL participants at the
IARU.
