As promised in today's meeting, here is my suggestion for additional
wording on page 3, question d) under major question 'Which 'territories'
are eligible for an IDN ccTLD?' For ease of seeing the context,I copied
question d) and the already agreed to GNSO response. My suggested added
wording is in blue font.
d) Should anything be done about ccTLDs already being used as gTLDs?
GNSO response: This seems to be an issue of primary concern for the

particular language community on Island X as well as any of its members
that may be located elsewhere in the world; an IDN ccTLD for .xi should
not be added to serve a generic global purpose, i.e., making it a
