      Barring few exceptions, we all agreed that DomeBase propoasal was the most reasonable way to break the impass without hurting any segment of Internet stakeholders, except fraud artists.  But, Afilias in their own wisdom have chosen to ignore it and it doesn't look like they are going to accept it. Time is running out.  We should therefore think of alternatives that can protect the legitimate interests of hundreds of thousands of pre-registrants who have invested their time, money and hopes in good faith and, see nothing but bleak scenario unfolding before their eyes.  I am proposing following , not to score any point, but to help find a solution that may be acceptable:

(1)Let sunrise period run the way it is proposed by Afilias.

(2)Let landrush period run the way it is proposed except that unsuccessful pre-registrations, instead of being discarded should be held in separate queues.

(3)Let 120 days challenge round run the way it is proposed.

(4)Let Afilias challenge the unqualified (fraudulent) registrations after challenge round.

(5)Pool the names released from 120 days challenge round as well as Afilias challenges.

(6)Now, run the unsuccessful pre-registrations from startup period (read(2)above)exactly the way startup period was run i.e. randomize the queues and allot pooled names in round robin fashion.
