      I wonder what will happen next time ICANN expands TLDs.  If .kids isn't chosen, for example, would those who applied this year have any advantage next time.  I would like to think so.  If you don't agree because several apps for .kids appear this year, what about those applications with unique TLDs. I would like to think that there is some reward for taking such risks.  For now it will be risking $50,000.  For IOD it was various other headaches and expenses that they took beginning 1995/1996.  It's not hard to imagine many equally qualified registry applications the next time.  What will set them apart from each other aside from inside connections?
