Reserved Names and Application Refunds

If ICANN finds that an applied-for gTLD "exceed[s] a similarity
threshold with a Reserved Name" and ICANN finds to be "too similar to a
Reserved Name" (as outlined in Section of Module 2), and the
application therefore does not pass the Reserved Names review, will the
applicant be refunded the entire application fee?


Alternatively, is there a way for ICANN to provide a pre-application
opinion regarding whether or not a proposed gTLD is "too similar to a
Reserved Name," such that the would-be applicant can get a determination
from ICANN *before* filing the application?
