||kids domain - general observations
The idea of a .kids domain is very strongly supported.
However I think it is essential that whomsoever is given custodianship of the .kids
tld should be able to demonstrate a clear connection with and understanding of children,
child welfare and child development. If the .kids domain were to become simply a
means of marketing more efficiently to children it would be a major abuse. Thus,
in relation to this set of applications, any configuration of interests in which
commercial interests predominate, or where clear, independent children's interest
groups are not given a major voice and role, would be unacceptable.|
think it is essential that children's interest organizations other than ones based
in the USA are fully integrated into whatever new arrangements might emerge.
the above criteria cannot be met this time then a decision should be delayed for
12 months while futher consultations take place, perhaps using recognised children's
groups as the agents to organize them.
