Subject: I think the "internet challenge" intentions are still very noble...

      I think Afilias would not even begin to gather even half of these domains if it weren't for someone to be a focal point, whereby someone can send this information.  Afilias has to look partial in this matter.  Also if Afilias thought the "internet challenge" was doing something harmful Richard would have gotten a "cease and desist" order.  He is very specific that he is not passing judgement on these domains. 

I also agree with you that this style of Sunrise cannot continue in future rollouts.  The entire English language would become trademarked.  The Digital Divide would increase because poorer nations would not have any kind of chance to register a domain for a reasonable cost.  As it is right now a Trademark is about $400 USD, and the domain itself is $35 per year.
