Re: [alac] RSTEP Report on Tralliance Proposal
Summary of the ALAC position, from p. 38 of the report. Bret [ #4 ] John Levine (http://forum.icann.org/lists/tralliance- comments/msg00004.html) submitted the consensus position of the At Large Advisory Committee. It is a very long set of comments and it strongly urges ICANN to reject the proposal. Notably it argues that the testbed TLDs should not be taken as precedent for new services in other TLDs. The ALAC response also discusses the false ³success² aspect of queries answered by a wildcard. The ALAC response also spends a considerable amount of time on the impact of wildcards on non-HTTP based applications.
