The level of financial and technical committment expressed in the application is *very* impressive, and the possibility of having a registry located in the far East is exciting.

I do have a serious concern about the degree of separation proposed between the registry operation and the registrar operation -- the NSI experience in this regard has not been good, and this registry would be culturally, geographically, linguistically, and legally remote from ICANN.  The registry and the registrar should be aggressively separated.  And given ICANN's lack of connections and expertise in the region, I'm afraid it falls upon the applicant to provide the assurances and the mechanisms to guarantee the separation.
