Maybe I'm missing something, but as I attempted to clarify in yesterday's
meeting regarding recommendation 3, I do not understand how adding text
about the selection process is appropriate since at this point in the
application cycle nothing has been selected, it's only been applied for. Are
you suggesting an objection can be raised based upon how the applicant
selected the string it applied for? I don't think this is the case, but
would like to be clear.
Moreover, in an objections-based model, a complainant (objector) would file
an objection against the applicant and would presumably have basis/grounds
to do so to potentially prevail in the dispute resolution of the objection.
If the selection process is added, how would the objections-based model
As I said, perhaps I'm missing something. And, clarification on this is much

Regarding Recommendation 3, it seems to me that there are two key
elements: 1) strings that may infringe existing legal rights and 2) the
selection process that may infringe existing legal rights. If I am
correct, then we need to include both in this recommendation and I think
we started working in that direction yesterday.
