To be clear, I do think that this issue has an impact on the end users, but
also that the impact is not as dramatic as Jean thinks. I am not saying that
I am right and she is wrong, or vice-versa, just that this is what I think,
although I am happy to see figures or other facts that can convince me of
the contrary.

So, for the time being, if the matter is limited to requesting an "Issue
Report", I agree.
If, on the other hand, this will have as a consequence that a PDP will be
started, I strongly believe that the GNSO has far more important things on
the plate right now (like the WhoIs, IDN, gTLDs) and that it will be
extremely unwise to add another one.
