I think this is a reasonable idea, given that my language Farsi is spoken in
several countries (Afghanistan, Tajikistan, some parts of Pakistan and Armenia,
etc) and has overlaps with the Arabic script community as well. A
generally-agreed to input from the greater language community, which includes
countries/governments may be more useful than just a countryâs right alone.

Given that alternative views have been expressed for the possible
rightâs of a country regarding IDN gTLDs in that countryâs scripts, I
would like to propose that some of these rights should also be given to
the language community. The two areas where language community input
would be particularly useful maybe the âapprovalâ of a gTLD IDN string
in its script and also its rights to influence the definitions/tables of
its scripts/languages. Obviously such language communities must speak
with a united or near-unanimous voice before ICANN accepts input.
There are two ways to accomplish this operationally:
(1) Amend the first two alternative views to replace the word âcountryâ
with âlanguage communityâ and specifically define âlanguage communityâ
in this context to include the relevant country/countries.
Or simply add a new alternative view (which can be at Support level if
there is some support) as follows:
*(2) Alternative View/ Support/ Agreement: To also accept a language
communityâs responsibility to approve any gTLD strings featuring its
particular script or influence the definitions/tables of its scripts if
that language community is speaking with a united or near-unanimous voice.
