Here is what I think is a very good suggestion regarding recommendations 3 and 6 from Becky Burr. In particular, I hope the subgroup formed to work on recommendation 6 will consider this.

Subject: suggested language for recommendation 3 and 6 on new GTLDs

I spoke with several folks in Puerto Rico and it seemed to me that there was a potential clarification for Recommendation 6 that might address some of the concerns being expressed about how one determined whether something was or was not a "generally accepted concepts about morality and public order," etc. I sent this suggestion earlier today to Liz Williams, J. Scott Evans, and Bruce (because they are among the people I discussed this with). Liz hasn't reacted, but J. Scott and Bruce have had positive reactions. Bruce suggested that I send it to you, so here goes.

Why not create a defined term "Generally Accepted International Standards" meaning:

"generally accepted legal norms, as codified in and enforceable through public international law enjoying broad global support including, without limitation, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, the International Covenant on Economic, Cultural, and Social Rights, the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women, the International Convention on Civil and Political Rights, the Convention on Rights of the Child, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and the Paris Convention for the Protection of Intellectual Property."

and then combine recommendations 3 and 6 into a single recommendation as follows:

"Strings must not be contrary to, or infringe the rights of others established in, Generally Accepted International Standards."
