Besides supporting the RySG comments on a number of matters in "New gTLD 
Program Implementation Review Draft Report", NIC.br (Núcleo de Informação e 
Coordenação do Ponto BR) and M+M (Minds + Machines ) would like to add a 
comment regarding item 2.4 "DNS Stability Evaluation", topic "Name Collisions". 

The very low occurrence of collisions in the actually delegated new gTLDs has 
shown that this concern was an overreach, notably the idea of life threatening 
name collisions. The wildcard pointing to an internal address process can now 
be considered effective, so we suggest that ICANN delegate preemptively the 
full list of proposed TLDs on the next round, so even more time can pass during 
evaluation to signal the issue for unwary networks. 

We also note that there is still no resolution to .CORP, .HOME and .MAIL, and 
no explanation as to why .MAIL would be a risk provided the dotless MAIL string 
only answers non-existent (which is already a contractual requirement to do). 
The Final JAS Report 
 doesn't make the distinction that is known to exist (see Google comments at 
 between dotless mail and requests to [something].mail.
