[alac] Comments on New TLD Paper
Whoa. Really? Then that's a completely different exercise. I think some of the questions are pretty far off the mark. For example, we're way past "what's the benefit of new TLDs?" Been there. Both the GNSO and the Board already determined that new gTLDs should be introduced "in a measured and responsible manner" (whatever that means) so it's a waste of time to go back to the basics. I'll try for another draft that addresses the question of whether the questions are the right questions on the question of new TLDs.
1) ICANN has asked for comments by 1 August on *the questions* posed in the staff paper entitled "New TLD Questions" <http://icann.org/announcements/announcement-06jul05.htm>. Basically, they want to know if they are asking the right questions. Bret has circulated a word version of these questions and asked for comment. Please give these questions some more thought. Anything missing??
