Appreciate the opportunity to comment on the applicant guidebook version 2, 
here is my thought on Module 2:

Section "3 or more characters TLD"

 From a Chinese user's point of view, the "3 or more characters TLD" rule is 
not applicable at all. Chinese language itself has a long trend to use as 
simplified form as possible. Giving an example that in India "Buddha" was 
translated into one Chinese character set "佛" (punycode: xn--1qq) or two 
character set "佛陀" (punycode: xn--1qq514o). And in Chinese, most useful nouns 
are made from 2 characters (if not 1 character) and with complete meaning.  

I did a little experiment myself trying to figure out Chinese words consists of 
"3 or more" Chinese character sets that are meaningful and reasonably good for 
new IDN gTLD, I failed.          

Please have this rule reviewed and corrected in the new version of applicant
