I think it is reasonable to believe that if they were still interested in 
proceeding with their 2000 application, they could free up enough staff 
and budget time to write a letter to ICANN saying so.

Personally I don't think it's in the public interest to allow private 
entities to squat on generic terms, but I don't find .health notably more 
objectionable than .book.
