Having reviewed the fifth version of the Draft Applicant Guidebook (DAG), we
want to commend ICANN for assimilating many of the comments and concerns
expressed by the internet community in the last version and also for advancing
the DAG close to its final form.
A document of this complexity and importance can never be "perfect," or
"complete" in the eyes of everyone. Though further refinements to the language
could be made, we believe that the DAG, in its current form, is robust enough
to support the launch of the new gTLD application process.
We acknowledge that the DAG will certainly evolve as ICANN becomes aware of
issues and difficulties arising during the application process and the launch
of the first new gTLDs. It's time to put it to the test by approving the DAG
so that we can move forward on the proposed timeline ICANN has set for the
launch which we believe will create more competition in the market and greater
benefits to consumers.
