submitted prior to the Cartagena Meeting, we would like now adding for your 
consideration an annex to the Step by Step proposal made long time 
ago.<div><br></div><div>Step by Step (supported by all the parties listed 
here:&nbsp;<a href="http://stepbystep.tel/";>http://stepbystep.tel/</a>) is a 
proposal calling for a practical approach allowing for an <i>Early Window 
</i>&nbsp;test. It is a fact that we all know and agree that most fo the 
disucssions holding ack a final resolution on the Applicant Guidebook (and the 
process of introduction of new gTLDs) relate in fact with certain type of 
applications, and certain type of gTLDs. Many possible gTLD aplicatns, for 
example linguistic and cultural TLDs, city TLDs, regional TLDs (and many other) 
fall well below the radar of any of the concerns addressed in the famous 
Overarching Issues. They are, for the most part, the innocent victims of the 
entrenched discussions of, for instance, trademark interests and domain-name 
speculators. The proposal sketches a wayforward, allowing also to run a test on 
the system.</div><div><br></div><div>The examples used in the Step by Step 
proposal (linguistic anc cultural TLDs; city TLDs...) are just that, examples 
of many well-known applications that nobody finds objectionable on any ground. 
We understand the difficulty (and unfairness) of devising a system based on 
pre-defined categories. For one thing, a descritptive category such as "city 
TLDs" does not mean that all and every possible city TLD application will hsare 
goals, procedures, safeguards and polcies that are even close. This is why 
those terms were used as explanation and justification, but not as basis of 
selection.&nbsp;</div><div><br></div><div>We are submitting now an Annex to 
that proposal, outlining a possible mechanism allowing that early Window test. 
It is submitted by CORE, beacuse even if it has been discussed with the parties 
supporting Step by Step (and well beyond) there was no material time to collect 
the formal supports.</div><div><br></div><div>Please find attached the PDF 
versions of both the Step by Step proposal and the new Annex (Red Flag 
Mechansim)</div><div><br></div><div>Amadeu Abril i Abril</div><div>CORE
