Cost of application, and Joint Application Support related.
In the discussion arising from a Draft ALAC statement on the SSR-RT
Set of Issues, drafted by Olivier Crepin-Leblond, in the context of
the cost of the DNSSEC requirement, an ALAC contributor has opined
that imposing a $100k cost for all technical issues is a negligible
burden, within a larger budget of "about 1M US$ soley for the ICANN
As the date for consensus set by the drafter is today, and the ALAC
contributor holding the views cited above has not responded to a set
of questions on the necessity and utility of requirements
substantially in excess of those imposed on all but 9 of the existing
332 registry operators, and substantially in excess of the
requirements met by the .aero, .coop, .museum, and .pro operators in
2001/2002, and the requirements met by the .cat operator in 2004/2005,
it is unlikely that there will be an ALAC consensus statement on the
SSR-RT Set of Issues.
I find it amazing that anyone has the self-assurance to use the ALAC's
comment on the SSR-RT issues to advocate that applications with less
than seven figures of capitalization, a tenth of which is allocated to
meeting initially non-functional DNSSEC and v6 requirements, have
insufficient capitalization and/or subject matter competency, and
should be expected to fail operationally post-delegation, or be failed
administratively prior to delegation.
