Dear Paul, Kurt
and all members of ICANN Staff.

In response to the ICANN call for comments on the New gTLD Applicant Guidebook, 
we submit some observations and recommendations in an effort to collaborate on 
having a fair and successful round for the introduction of new gTLDs.

In general we believe that the RFP as-is pictures a process that falls too far 
from being fair and equitable. It imposes severe restrictions and high walls to 
the introductions of new, innovative business models. From our perspective as a 
ccTLD Registry Operator of a developing country, we also believe that this 
process will bring benefit only to big registry operators with dotcom-like 
business models, preventing new, innovative and value adding business models 
from being added to de domain name system.
We are very concerned about this fact, because if in the past ICANN has faced 
the threat of alternate-roots that promote the introduction of new and 
attractive TLDs, we believe that this threat could rise again but stronger if 
ICANN fails in putting together a process that is open, fair and equitable for 
the introduction of new gTLDs.

Please see the attached document for our comments organized by module.

Best Regards

Oscar A. Robles-Garay
NIC Mexico
