Dear Jeff and all:
The RCRC and IOC representatives met this afternoon as requested, to discuss
the languages to be included for the String Similarity Review on the top-level
and for the first round only.
The RCRC and IOC have agreed to limit the languages submitted for String
Similarity Review on the top-level and for the first round to those set forth
in the Applicant Guidebook in Section 18.104.22.168.3. The parties have decided to
proceed this way in the spirit of cooperation and for purposes of expediency,
understanding that the parties both assert that the list of languages as set
forth in the Applicant Guidebook in Section 22.214.171.124.3 is only illustrative and
the denominations have broader protections in other languages that may be
asserted in future rounds and at the second level. We hope that this spirit of
cooperation will resolve the discussions that have been held on the languages
issue and will help move this proposal forward to consensus.
Accordingly, as this list has been previously verified, we recommend that the
last sentence of Recommendation 2 relating to vetting of the list be deleted.
