without getting into possible solution spaces, would the following wording help
Objective 2: To identify whether and, if so, how the new gTLD fees can be
reduced while maintaining a genuine application cost recover basis for the
round and taking into account fair allocation of costs.
This should leave notions like 'what is a genuine cost recovery basis?' and
'what does fair allocation entail?' as discussion items without prejudice on
the approach to be taken.
