I read carefully your statement, and I’m really satisfied. I found it
exhaustive, well documented, and addressing all the points that I fought
for in the discussion group that prepared for the issue report. I fully
agree with you that we need to avoid rushing towards a next round, but not
block the system endlessly.  We need to be present and strongly defend our
positions in the WG. I will be there.

the Preliminary Issue Report on New gTLD Subsequent Procedures


[ I've modified the distribution & added both new gTLD WG list & ALAC list -
when you reply, you might get a bounce from the new gTLD list if you're not
in the WG but staff will do the magic to unlock you message ]

Just a few notes:
- the Preliminary Issues Report is long (147 pages) but needs to be read
- the draft ALAC Statement addresses only those points which Carlton and I
felt were important to address. If you see anything else in the Preliminary
Issues Report that requires our attention, please flag it as soon as
possible so we can add it.
- I know that some in our community are saying: "no more new gTLDs / ban on
new gTLD rounds", or "no more new gTLDs until we see a demonstration that
the first round has served the public interest". 
Please note that the current issues report says that the default is that the
program *will continue with a next round*. Having spent time on the gNSO
council participating in the discussions, it is clear that there is a very
strong pressure from Contracted Parties and some parts of the Non-Contracted
parties (some of whom might be interested in being part of the next
application round) that *want* a next round to take place *as soon as
possible*. Unless you are ready to enter a trench war with the GNSO, I would
not recommend that we ask for an outright indefinite ban on new gTLDs --
because since the working group will be a GNSO working group, we'll all end
up being completely ignored from day 1. Carlton and I have therefore taken
the stance that if there is going to be another round, *all* the issues
identified in the issues report, and other issues we have pointed out, need
to be both studied and resolved. Even that is going to be a very hard point
to defend, but it is absolutely worth defending - if/when the working group
gets under way, please take part in the WG.
- If the At-Large Community would like next round of new gTLDs promoting
applicants from developing economies, the ALAC might need to support a next
round sooner rather than later.

Kind regards,
