CORE would like expressing its concern regarding a general trend with each new 
version of the DAG: more and more technical and operational requirements are 
added, all of them well-intentioned, and wise... if we take as a model a big, 
standard, mass-registration-oriented TLD. But the effect of each new version is 
seriously raising the operational costs for all sort of TLD registries, when 
most of them don’t need the highest possible standards. We would like asking 
ICANN staff to keep in mind that one size does not fit all, and that a small 
community oriented TLD with a relatively compact geographical area of influence 
might not need, for instance, 24/7 customer support at all levels. Nor many of 
the security-oriented additions.
