Well, the process for the future should not be based on the TLD extension
itself, but the sponsor, registry operator and registrar network be the
focus. ( ALL the processes below are before LIVE Operations)  .
1. That All TLDs Application should be conditionally approved for the
Internet Community. ( one or two (max) TLDs per applicant)
2. Registry Operator and Registrar Services needs to assembled, the hardware
and software requirements need load testing to a international standard set
by ICANN / IANA
3. Financial Stability and Accounting Processes then need to be finalized
and signed off by ICANN

Then final processes are enabled to bring the TLD live to the Internet
Community. In this way the domains can meet all hurdles before going live
and support mechanisms are in place and tested and proven. That is the
issues that the Fall 2000 "Proof of Concept" wasn't properly delivered.
Therefore all the candidates could have been through this process, and we
could have had about twenty + new domains some restricted, some
unrestricted, and some with new sponsors and still providing a stable and
robust internet community with exciting growth for the future.

Then the process only controls the call for new applications, the market
force will control the issuing of domains to the set standards. and
therefore the "selective processes that Fall 2000 Exercise" had wouldn't
come into future application calls. The above process still has safeguards
for the internet community and ICANN still would be the gatekeeper

Yours Faithfully
