Any arrangement that allows for the IOC or IFRC to allow an applicant register 
a name that is similar to a name reserved on its behalf, set up the opportunity 
for either an explicit licensing arrangement (i.e. applicant pays directly for 
the permission from one of the two protected entities) or an implicit licensing 
arrangement (i.e where a coincidental contribution results in the granting of 
the permission) to register the similar name.  

The recommendation from this committee contained such a provision.  I am not 
stating that there was any intent for this to happen, but the recommendation 
from this DT did create that opportunity.  Now while this licensing arrangement 
is already the policy for governments, the IOC and IFRC would have been the 
first non-governments to have been provided such a licensing (explict or 
implicit) right.
