Richard, you say, "The New TLD agreements have been advertised as ICANN's "proof of concept"... well, the "proof of concept" is far from proven, in fact it remains a shambles."

It was a SHAM - not a shambles. Main points:

No checking of input - allowing more money in.

No validation of trademark owner - to cut costs - allowing more money in - allowing registrar and others to commit fraud.

The deliberate over-reach by registered trademarks - claiming words when they had graphic of word or perversion of words like DuPont with

The abridgement of common words to the people in a supposed 'open' gTLD - stopping personal use and smaller non-trademarked businesses using these words.

If domains primarily belong trademarks like they say, why they have Sunrise, then the stealing of trademark names by registry.
