We wish to provide some further improvements to the way in which it is proposed 
to run the ICANN last resort auctions.   We would like to adjust the time 
periods within which payments must be made by a winning applicant.  We propose 
to leave the under $1million payment to the proposed 20 days.   We then suggest 
a sliding scale of payments for a $1-5million bid to 30 days; a $5-10 million 
bid to 45 days and a $10 million and over bid to sixty days.  
This will help introduce a more level playing field for smaller applicants to 
not only raise the right level of monetary support but to also manage cash flow 
for applicants in very popular contention sets for which the auction costs 
could be very high.
We would also suggest a pre-negotiating phase to ensure that a private solution 
cannot be reached before forcing applicants to the ICANN auction.
