Subject: A Great Compromise with New.Net and ICANN?

Message:
 

 
Fact: NEW.NET dot-chat (.chat), dot-club (.club), dot-family (.family), dot-free (.free), dot-game (.game), dot-inc (.inc), dot-kids (.kids), dot-law (.law), dot-ltd (.ltd), dot-med (.med), dot-shop (.shop), dot-soc (.soc), dot-sport (.sport), dot-travel (.travel), dot-video (.video), dot-xxx (.xxx) TLD's in alternate roots.

Proposal: ICANN should put only the following NEW.NET's dot-chat (.chat), dot-club (.club), dot-family (.family), dot-free (.free), dot-game (.game), dot-kids (.kids), dot-shop (.shop), dot-soc (.soc), dot-sport (.sport), dot-travel (.travel), dot-video (.video), dot-xxx (.xxx) TLD's into the USG's A-root and recognize NEW.NET as the sole Registry for those TLD's.  NEW.NET should recognize Registry Pro as sole dot-med and dot-law registry and transfer all such records to it.  NEW.NET should recognize Neulevel as sole dot-inc and dot-ltd registry and transfer all such records to it. [All registrants' domain registrations would remain valid.]

All other NEW.NET TLD's would remain only on the alternate roots and off the USG root.  [ICANN and NEW.NET could decide to make similar swap deals for these TLD's in the future.]

This would be best for internet users.  This would bring many new TLD's to the USG root users (the vast majority of internet users) while avoiding TLD-collisions.

Most of ICANN's choices for future TLD's already exist in alt. roots.
If all alt. root TLD's were brought onto USG root, then ICANN would lose ability to create new TLD's.

The above suggestion is a good compromise.
