beleive the special status given any name other than "example", should be
reviewed as part of that exercise.  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.

There are times at ICANN where I feel I am living a continuous "ground-hog

A considerable amount of time and hard work has been devoted to discussing
the concept of a Global Protected Marks List (GPML). By "considerable", I
mean tens of thousands of man-hours, through the IRT, but also the STI-WG,
plus countless formal and informal meetings.
Bottom line: it would be extremely unwise to extend TM rights to entities
beyond the rights they have been granted by WIPO. ICANN should
*not* be in the business of choosing what's protected and what's not.

Hence my own personal reservations about the wisdom (or lack thereof) of
having the section "Strings Ineligible for Delegation", because it re-opens
a Pandora's box which I was glad to see behind us.
