Bulgaria really needs to be able to object somehow the DNS panel`s
rejection of its IDN cctld.

Ask yourselves - an objection mechanism exists in every administrative
procedure, or in courts around the world. Why ICANN to be any
different that the rest?

Bulgaria didn`t have the right to defend its idea for an IDN cctld -
the panel just said "no" - and that was all - a one way decision. How
will you feel if you are not given the right to object a court
decision which is againts you, and you know that you are right?
Bulgarian people feel like this.

Also, the DNS panel`s criteria, used to evaluate the domains should be
made public. Now, with all this anonymity, people in Bulgaria believe
that the panel didn`t review carefully the request , and didn`t
explore all options.

How do you react when you read this - "We therefore apply a very
conservative standard in our assessment of applied-for strings that
consist of two Greek, Cyrillic, or Latin characters, including a
default presumption of confusability to which exceptions may be made
in specific cases. "? A 'default presumption"? Where is the criteria
here? (Sorry for making this public, but parts of the DNS panel report
circulate freely in Bulgarian mailing lists, so should be correct.)
