Re: [alac] Comments on New TLD Paper
Along with Bret, Yikes!
Can ICANN really, more than five years after introducing "testbeds" for introduction of new gTLDs, not know what questions they were trying to answer? Do we have to go back to square 1 again? What have we been doing all this time?
Were any hypotheses or questions posed when the testbeds were launched in 1999?
It's high time ICANN stopped questioning questions and get on with it. --Wendy

Whoa. Really? Then that's a completely different exercise. I think some of the questions are pretty far off the mark. For example, we're way past "what's the benefit of new TLDs?" Been there. Both the GNSO and the Board already determined that new gTLDs should be introduced "in a measured and responsible manner" (whatever that means) so it's a waste of time to go back to the basics. I'll try for another draft that addresses the question of whether the questions are the right questions on the question of new TLDs.
