It’s a .brand – zero “normal” registrants or users will be impacted

If it was a TLD with actual registrations then it would be a totally different matter, but it isn’t.

Maybe we should track these 'returns/abandonments' and in context, [re]read the recommendations of the Subsequent Procedures WG?

Saw a story of a domain investor account of his return on investment so far; he's in the red with diminishing prospects.

On top of these kind of stories that speak to the conditions in the end user market and the 'retired and/or abandoned gLTDs, it just seems 'otherworldly' to me that in all the happy talk of new rounds, this idea that demand has something to do with markets is largely left unmentioned. Helluva thing!
