1. Propose creating a category called Controversial
Names for use at the top level only. A label that
is applied for would be considered Controversial
if during the Public Comment phase of the new
gTLD application process the label becomes
disputed by a formal notice of a consensus
position from an ICANN Advisory Committee or
ICANN Supporting Organization, and otherwise
meets the definition of Controversial Names as
defined above.

2. How is a non consensus issue that is brought up by an AC, e.g. the GAC, to be handled? this relates to the GAc principles on new gTLDs, specifically:

3.3 If individual GAC members or other governments express formal concerns about any issues related to the new gTLDs, the ICANN board should fully consider those concerns and clearly explain how it will address them

Is it sufficient for such disputes to be handled only at the ICANN board level or should the dispute process be open to individual governments? Is is appropriate for the GSNOS policy to determine that a GAC decsion needs to be by consensus?
