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.
184.108.40.206 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
