||Alternative roots for .biz or other tld's
maybe you are right. dot biz was first known at Atlantic
root. You say "Icann must stop this insane attack on namespace".
But: Also other
tld's were known earlier, like .web from IOD, (IANA charged to testbed),or namespace
with more than 100 tld's aso.
The difference is, that for example IOD and names.space
, and others followed the rules and directions of ICANN and applied for new tlds
and paid 50 000 $ for this, and are waiting for approval from ICANN.
from ICANN - meeting in Califoria:
. Broad consensus with respect
to any of the five additional TLDs? Name.Space, IODesign, .UNION, .KIDS, .LAW.
McLaughlin: Determination of whos a union? An
independent body. Reviewed comment forum, and there were no union organizations opposing
the application. AFL-CIO favored this. Board must decide how representative the comments
in favor were.
Cohen: This is a good
proof-of-concept. Technically sound. Representative.
Kraaijenbrink: Dont know if its representative. Dont know registration
policy. It might be delegated in the future, but not in this batch.
Touton: Board members who havent spoken on this subject?
Show of hands? Five favor addition to main list. Five against. No consensus.
Any request from your dot.biz to ICANN?
