Thanks for your follow-up. I am sure that not all contracted parties
might wish another round. In fact, there are surely some Registries that
are starting business from the current round and are no looking forward
to having another round tailing behind them. Ditto for Registrars that
have to sign more and more agreements with more Registries. But what I
have noticed so far on the GNSO council is that the representatives from
Contracted Parties have a unified concern that the process might be
delayed - thus reticence to having an initial extended commenting
period, concerns that the PDP might take several years. Eagerness to
start now.
Has a frank discussion taken place in Contracted parties House?

Kindest regards,
