Re: [gtld-council] Discussion on allocation methods
Hi, If I might comment.I had suggested that the allocation method should suit the type or category of TLD. Perhaps it might have been better said the type of applicant. Be that as it may.
The list of categories was, i believe, a masterful ad-absurdum argument to show why this idea might not work.
I think, however, that a careful description of a few categories, not so much of TLD type but perhaps of applicant type, might still lead to a reasonable way to distinguish between TLDs allocated first come first served, or by lottery, or by auction.

Bruce,not having participated on that discussion I'm somewhat confused by the approach of creating categories and the examples (I assume that the onebelow are merely examples) of how such categories could look like. E.g I don't understand neither the difference between Commercial (e.g .com, .retail) and Unsponsored (e.g .biz)which are to me and I assume the end user as well, all TLDs sometimes but not always being utilized for business purposes, nor do I understand thepupose of this approach.
