>From an August 8th, 2008 ICANN posting:
"Backend Registry Certification Not Available in First Round - On 31
January 2008, ICANN posted an announcement (
http://www.icann.org/en/announcements/announcement-2-31jan08.htm ) to
inform the community that it was exploring a potential initiative for
the certification of backend registry operators for new gTLDs. The
initiative was suggested as a possible means to streamline the
application process for new gTLDs and to create a pool of
pre-qualified registry operators who could provide assistance in the
event of a registry failure. Exploration of the initiative was also
prompted by inquiries from a range of community members who expressed
that creation of the certification would promote competition for
technical services providers."
Coined? As in newly minted?
