Structure of the template[edit]

Dear all, I propose to make a small change in the structure of the template. I find that the first line "UN System" is somehow misleading because the UN System is equal to the entirety of the numerous formal institutions, international agreements, etc., which the template as such is trying to reflect (i.e., we are saying the same thing twice over). The only reference to "UN System", which I could find, by the UN itself, is in this organizational chart provided the UN General Assembly: http://www.un.org/en/aboutun/structure/org_chart.shtml.

My suggestions: 1) The first line should say "UN Principal Organs" instead of "UN System", 2) as a consequence, the entry for UNDESA should be removed because it is "only" a department of the UN Secretariat, which already shows in the template, and 3) a separate line for the members and observers should be created. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Karl Magnus (talkcontribs) 09:14, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
