We support the development of policy to protect the names and acronyms of 
governmental international organizations (IGOs) and non-governmental 
international organizations of wide public interest (such as RC and IOC). This 
policy should be set up for organizations that meet specific set of abstract 
criteria and not for specifically named organizations, in order to ensure 
equity and regular public procedure, and to avoid discretionary/discriminatory 
decisions. We think the protection for IGOs is more relevant than for 
non-governmental organization such as RC/IOC, but we think that protection for 
these two organizations is well deserved and, as their consideration is more 
advanced at ICANN, that they could be used in the policy definition process as 
concrete situations to develop appropriate protection policies which could then 
be also applied to IGOs. The only thing that would remain to be done regarding 
IGOs would then be the definition of the corresponding eligibility criteria.
