So then this really says "don't break the law"?

That is a good question. It seems to me that the relevant national
statutes and court decisions that have worked out the law and free
expression boundaries for "Internet speech" are the relevant rules.
But I don't think it is a particular issue that ICANN needs to decide
because national law sets the different rules for radio v. print v.

How about a slightly revised version of #6 as follows?:

regarding trademarks and principles from the Universal Declaration of
Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political
rights such as freedom of expression rights."
Please take this as a legitimate question, it is intended in good faith.
Are we referring to the legal norms relating to morality in the
broadcast sense, the publication sense or the private access sense? (I
mention three variations knowing that there are other forms as well).
Even within these three categories, there are differing standards
applied - what gets printed in a book is different than what gets
printed in a newspaper. What the FCC permits over a television
broadcast is much different that what they permit over pay-per-view.
Which standards do we expect will be applied in terms of TLD strings?
