It seems to me that GAC has been so bombarded by lobbists from the
established English Speaking Vested Interests that it and ICANN have
completely dropped the ball on the biggest risk of abuse of all.


Nothing has been done or said to ensure that applicants from Audibly
Identical Strings which have slipped through a rather loose Initial
Evaluation are contractually constrained to ensure that the Integrity
and Stability of the Internet is not put at risk because registries
subsequently decide to profiteer by selling visually identical strings
in audibly identical gTLDs. Such gTLDs should only ever have been
allowed on the understanding and clear contractual obligation to bundle
the strings to the same registrant.


In many cases registrants have held IDN.com domains in most of the Asian
languages that require Unicode to express their scripts. Dot Com is
ubiquitous throughout most of Asia so the risk of confusion of
introducing identical strings with Audibly Identical gTLDS that are
unbundled could potentially result in utter chaos and endless litigation
for which ICANN is likely to play the role of Defendant. The chances of
a successful defence, however, are limited due to the fact that your
current course of action appears to be going against every principle
that you have ever uttered.
