Lots of discussion after Lynn’s presentation on the action plan, just a few remarks: Quite some criticism on the number of three new gTLDs to be added soon; some statements on the future policy to be followed, including the question of a “taxonomy” of TLDs (which is identified as a mis-nomer by Carey “Mr. Museum” Karp). Some discussion on possible criteria with Noss, Campos. Elliott Noss points to Bret’s principles. Much objection against the idea of second-guessing business success. Minimum standards? Public interest? TLDs really just to be considered as businesses? Stability? Bret Fausett asks for data from testbed registries. Points to escrow plans.
