Subject: ICANN rules regarding new TLD's


Where are the standards and rules defining who can receive licenses for New TLDs and who will not?  Where are the rules here?


Surely you jest!  Do you think that there are rules involved in this entire process?  Here is one standard though:  Is anybody with influence within ICANN involved in a business that will benefit from running a new TLD registry?  If so, the answer may very well be yes.

Other than that, ICANN is so opaque that I am not sure anybody knows what the rules and standards are, other than the nebulous questions required in the new TLD applications.
