[At-Large] At-Large Use of Country and Territory Names as Top Level Domains

Dear At-Large members

Country codes are traditionally a 2-letter string. The new gTLD process is
enabling country and territory codes to be expanded to 3-letters (or even
as whole names).

The “Cross Community Working Group for the Use of Country and Territory
Names as Top Level Domains” is asking:

1. Should these new 3-letter country/territory codes be reserved ONLY as
ccTLDs *OR* should they be open to everyone as gTLDs?  (This question
refers to 3-letter code IDN ccTLDs and IDN gTLDs as well)

2. What advantages or disadvantages does your answer offer either group
(ccTLDs or gTLDs)?

Please return your answers to these two questions to me asap. J
