3.1.1 Please take into consideration that in confusion between scripts field 
the prosess presented here will result a chaos.
According this specifications  in 3.4.1 that current  ASCII ccTLD registry 
could happily block any IDN Tld application in a view of a "similar meaning". 
In a view of 300 new ASCII gTLD that means 300 more new meaning  in every 
language to block. Moreover, creating of 300 new ASCII gTLD "existing 
operators" - looks like unfair act for IDN folks in a view of "cyber-squatting" 
of the "meanings" by people who hosting Ehglish, it's complete nonsense and 
might lead countries back to ideas if creating own separate Internets. In case current TLD registry succeed the string confusion dispute and 
the new application will be rejected, it should be closed case for everybody 
and it should be rejected for all and can't be given to anyone else, especially 
to the TLD registry who objected and won the case. Otherwise, again, it looks 
like pure "cybersquatting" from existing and  300 new ASCII gTLD and should not 
be supported/proposed by ICANN but treated accordingly. It's  opposite from 
widely stated by ICANN mission of openness, transparency, fairness and 
especially accountability.
