I agree with Eric.

What I find astounding about the issue is that it's still alive right now.

ICANN has its hands full dealing with problems emanating from the
*existing* regulations guiding the current application round. Adding new
points of deviation from what was explicitly disallowed is an invitation
for even more grief.

If Google and others want to demonstrate innovation that makes the DNS more
diverse while providing public benefit and addressing the real security
concerns, we have until the next round to figure it out.

I think it is wholly appreciate that NARALO further discuss this issue. We
have the aims of both informing our community, and possibly advising ICANN
(in as strong and direct language as possible) to defer consideration of
this issue until after the fallout from round one of the gTLD expansion
program is understood.
