Do you think is possible to add a paragraph to your draft regarding
high application fees and aplications from developing countries ?
I think current fees are unfair an inequitable, since they would
practically elimitate any possibility for countries like Ghana,
Argentina, Brazil or even Southafrica, Chile, etc. to join the
process and propose new sTLD's.
Yes, I think it would be a useful addition to the point that high
fees drive out non-profits, to say that even for-profit applicants
from developing countries are likely to be deterred by these fees.
