Several things of particular note:

- The GAC is insisting that for ALL new gTLDs and not just Community 
TLDs, the commitments made in their applications must be incorporated 
into their contracts and subject to compliance oversight.

- The GAC has added IGOs to the list of organizations to be protected 
prior to the delegation of the first new TLD, and that this 
protection be given to those IGOs who are eligible for registration 
under .int. They have committed, however, to develop a list of names 
and acronyms that should be protected (since registries cannot work 
from the .int criteria themselves).

- The GAC is questioning the need to have a PDP to protect the RC/IOC 
names since in their mind, the international instruments and national 
laws should be sufficient.
