This comment is in the interest of the community to debate. Recommend ICANN
consider allowing free market forces to influence delegation placement
through exchange or sale of delegation sequences post draw. It creates a
marketplace for position that will allow market forces to order delegation
sequence. Those requiring capital have a new asset to sell, thereby
increasing their chance of success. Those with capital have the opportunity
to advance their position and improve their chance of success.  This allows
the best of both worlds;

1. An unbiased ICANN draw removes all subjectivity from prioritization, and

2. The inclusion of market forces to order the sequence bringing best
equipped tld strings and ventures thereby increasing chance of program

Administratively, this should not be difficult and if it is, that's OK
because it is the right thing to do. For the single motivated capitalized
application, brand, generic, geo or community it is an opportunity to move
forward now if that is their desire. For the portfolio applicants it allows
them to order strings and launch their most valued strings first.  For those
without capital, they still have a chance to get an early delegation
sequence where in a completely free market system they would not have any

Submitted respectfully for consideration.
