Jeff, all,
in response to your question below:

Let me say that I am disappointed with the way the Board / the new gTLD Program 
Committee handled this. It is another good example of a lack of communication 
prior to decision-making. In its meeting with the Board, the GNSO Council had 
expressed concerns on exactly such scenarios only a few weeks back in Prague!! 

While I do understand and appreciate the fact that the new gTLD Program 
Committee wishes to get things done and show some activity with respect to this 
matter after it was criticized for not having implemented the GNSO Resolution 
on the Top Level Protections, I would have preferred if they had reached out to 
Stéphane and / or you, Jeff, to discuss the status and the implications of a 
planned decision. Now it is us (again) being uncertain and being forced to ask 
for clarification and potentially amend plans.
