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.

not having participated on that discussion I'm somewhat confused by
approach of creating categories and the examples (I assume that the
below 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)
Unsponsored (e.g .biz)
which are to me and I assume the end user as well, all TLDs
not always being utilized for business purposes, nor do I
pupose of this approach.
