Regarding the session on Universal Acceptance, my business partner has had
some unhappy experiences with .NAME ? after all these years!
.NAME is not accepted by Apple for an ID (for iTunes, or any Apple device),
British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Sears, New York Department of
Education, among many others.
Hope this helps.

Subject: [bc-gnso] TLD Universal Acceptance
As mentioned in the meeting just now there is a panel tomorrow (and a
public forum closing on the 23rd March).
The panel is at 12.30 on Wednesday in ?La Paz A? entitled: TLD Universal
Universal Acceptance of All Domains has been an on-going effort driven by
ICANN. In the past this project's focus was on raising awareness that
software vendors and other parties needed to make sure they accepted domains
from new gTLDs that were introduced in previous rounds in 2000 and 2004.
This scope has since expanded to include IDN ccTLDs, and since the ICANN
Board of Directors approved the new gTLD program last year, many more new
TLDs are expected to be added to the root zone in the near future. The main
goal of this project is to raise awareness in the community and discuss the
best ways of addressing these issues. In order to help the project achieve
these goals, we are seeking to engage with the community on the best ways to
identify and address the issues involved. We are inviting experts, like
yourself, to take part in this active discussion so you can share your
opinion on what you think could and should be done in order to promote
further universal acceptance of all domains.
We would like to allow invitees to share their experiences and opinions, as
well as answer the following questions:
1. What are the existing issues with acceptance of domains registered within
2. Who should be addressing the existing issues, for example, registry
operators, registrars, ISPs, software vendors, software developers, others?
3. How can ICANN promote universal acceptance of all domains effectively?
