I believe the original intent was that the various SOs would provide their input on how policies impacted their particular areas.  Sort of like why the various IETF areas meet at the same meeting.

You have an odd view of what a 'liaison' does. I was suggesting ASO AC members could provide information to the NANOG community since it would seem at least some participants in NANOG were unaware of ICANN's activities and were unpleasantly surprised.

It doesn't cost anything (well, monetarily -- expense to sanity may be high, but that is the same as with PPML in my experience) to participate in ICANN meetings.
