[alac] New TLD Questions from Susan Crawford
from Susan Crawford's weblog:
My personal question, one asked not on behalf of anyone else (and of course you are welcome to reject the question) is whether there is strongly-held opposition to the following points:
We could change the process to one of "accreditation" rather than
"approval." It would be more straightforward to require technical
capacity and escrow and financial standing (minimal requirements).
All applications could be subject to a "quick look" for objections based on real semantic harm to established interests. How would that test be formulated? Is it possible to have an "accreditation" process that also has an element of checking for harm to others (and what harm would be relevant)?
I hope for comments.
