Dear Olivier,

I think the recommendation to suspend the program 
is wrong (Strickling is right :-)), yes I know 
it's draft, however if you wish to go forward 
with it and have the resolution taken seriously, 
you (or at least Evan as the proposer of the 
motion) should be specific in what is meant by 
"public-interest" in this sentence:

"We request that implementation of the program be 
suspended until necessary public-interest 
modifications are implemented."

The gTLD program is specific, what needs to be 
modified to remove these public-interest 
concerns?  Identify what needs to be addressed, 
otherwise you're potentially creating an ever 
moving target.
