...  it does suggest that VI is a workable principle for community
TLDs that closely resemble ccTLDs in setup and purpose.

So here is an issue we can mull over, lack of an appropriate application type and the lack of an appropriate contract.

When an applicant represents that the registry will "closely resemble ccTLDs in setup and purpose", that representation could be recognized rather than ignored by the evaluation process, and recognized rather than ignored in the contracting process.

At that point it would be useful to consider the policy that applies to registries and registrars.

Obviously, "closely resemble ccTLDs in setup and purpose" assumes some definitions, and probably excludes repurposed ccTLDs, no matter how vigorous the assertion is made that the Principle of Subsidiarity allows ccTLD operators to ignore the responsibility and duty language of RFC 1591.

Also obviously, a type of application that has policy consequences applies just as well to the notions of SRSUs floating about.
