It seems to me that this wording may go counter to one of the objectives
we have pursued for a long time on the New gTLD Committee, that is to
attempt to not put the ICANN Board in a situtation where they are overly
exposed to risk. I understand Milton's point that it may be impossible
to limit all risk in that regard because they are the overall
coordinator of the process. But I still think we should try to minimize
their exposure. In that regard, would the following word work for you.
"The expert panel tasked with evaluating any string challenges filed
must weigh an applicant's freedom of expression rights as contained in
internationally recognized principles of law."
I suspect others may be able to word this better than me, but my goal is
focus on the what the expert panel would need to do rather than focus on
the over all string selection process.
