Dear IDN-WG colleagues,

Some of you will know that the At-Large Consolidated Policy Working Group
(CPWG) is in the process of reviewing the anticipated recommendations (also
affirmations and implementation guidance where available) of the New gTLD
Subsequent Procedures PDP WG ahead of the release of its draft final report
later this year.

The process adopted by CPWG is to review a series of At-Large preliminary
scorecards on various topics of high and medium priority from the
end-users' perspective. It was agreed that assistance be sought from
members of the IDN-WG on the preliminary scorecards for Universal
Acceptance and Internationalized Domain Names, as both areas are considered
key foci for the IDN-WG, given the expertise and interest of its membership.

Thus, please find for comments the following:

   - Universal Acceptance draft preliminary scorecard as at 16 Feb 2020
   draft SubPro WG affirmations, recommendations & implementation guidelines)
   - Internationalized Domain Names draft preliminary scorecard as at 16
   Feb 2020

Please bear in mind that while we welcome comments in general, the CPWG
Small Team working to finalize and consolidate the scorecards in due course
will attempt to do so by considering feedback which ought to be taken up
(or re-taken up, as the case may be) versus which might be omitted.

The format of the preliminary scorecards provide an idea on the Small
Team's approach. We also suggest that you peruse the presentation
out the status of SubPro WG deliberations against the ALAC's last public
comment input as at 26 August 2019.

Perhaps some consideration for these preliminary scorecards can factored
into any planned face-to-face meeting at ICANN67.

Many thanks in advance,

*Justine Chew*
CPWG SubPro Small Team Lead
At-Large liaison for Subsequent Procedures
