[At-Large] Proposed ALAC statement on reserved names for the IOC and Red Cross

I went through the reserved names's PDF to recall myself the issue, 
however at that time the case of protection of organizations other that 
ICANN was not even addressed.

Today it's screaming that ICANN places itself above the other rights 
holders, while at the same time is creating instability for many 
organizations, and for the whole world.

With its private reserved list of names ICANN is not credible. The 
legislative body cannot set rules and make exception for itself -- not 
in a decent place.

ICANN is immoral to make an exception of itself from its own rules.

I have no idea how to address that issue, but it cannot simply be forgotten.

For this round, the issue of reserved names was discussed as part of the New gTLD PDP and in my opinion any changes would require another PDP.
