Closed Generic gTLDs

I'm writing to express my concern about the proposed introduction of the closed 
generic gTLDs - in particular the .cloud domain and the application by Amazon 
to be the domain registrar.

This action is antithetical to the whole notion of the open Internet and is a 
proposal that does nothing to enhance the free market in a growing area of 
technology. I find it hard to think of many actions that are so detrimental to 
the emergence of competition in the cloud market. It cannot be good for the 
industry and for users to have a domain administered by a single player in the 
marketplace, it's a move almost designed to kill off competition.

Speaking as the editor of UK's leading cloud publication, I wish to oppose this 
proposal and hope that ICANN rejects it.
