I am writing to oppose parts of the Proposed Renewal of .TRAVEL Sponsored TLD 
Registry Agreement issued for public comment on May 12, 2015, in particular the 
inclusion of a modified version of the new gTLD rights protection mechanisms in 
Specification 7 of the proposed RA, especially Uniform Rapid Suspension (URS).

The URS cannot become a consensus policy until a full policy development 
process (PDP) has been undertaken by the ICANN community who are still awaiting 
the release of the new gTLD RPM Issues Report.

Retrospectively implementing URS in an existing gTLD is an arbitrary backdoor 
process in violation of ICANN’s stated commitment to consultation in the policy 
development process.

I therefore urge you to remove Specification 7/URS and other provisions that 
are not established consensus policies from the .Travel RA before consideration 
by the Board.

Thank you for your consideration in this matter.


Phil Temperly,
Director, Dotrader Pty Ltd
