Yes, I voted No because I thought there was some kind of new standard through
which a govt could file an objection of any kind (e.g., conflict with national
law) and move it through the community objection procedure. I even asked a
question about this online, or at least in private emails to various people.
The question is, when a national govt files a community objection to a TLD
string must the string be directly related to the national community, and are
there clear limits as to what kind of objections may be filed? Or is it an open
invitation for a govt to say "I don't like this TLD" for any reason whatsoever?
I guess I am not as well-informed about the community objection criteria as I
need to be, and given ongoing IGF don't have time to remedy that.

I was also surprised by the number of 'no' votes on this.
In addition to the possible reasons suggested by Chuck (below) is it because
some felt that it implied a change to the existing Community Objection standard?
Am interested to hear why people voted against this.

I have concerns about the poll results so far on the following:
"Recommendation 2.2: If individual governments have objections based on
contradiction with specific national laws, such objections should be submitted
through the Community Objections procedure?"
It was my impression that this was a very important point for governments and I
believe that AGv4 allows it anyway. For those that oppose this, is it because
you don't think it should be stated by this group or do you think that the
guidebook should be changed to not allow this? If the latter, I think that may
be a problem in terms of getting support of government members of our group.
