Hi Danny and Eric,

It will be interesting to note that, at the ALAC level at least (and
certainly in my own point of view), there is a shift in emphasis away from
"consumer" and towards "end user", and away from "choice" and towards
"trust". Too much of ICANN's approach to the Internet end-user world has
been through the eyes of suppliers approaching their markets. This may be
accurate wrt registrants, but not end users.

Also, I am not sure if the .xxx experience is at all indicative of the
objection process envisioned for future gTLDs, either by ALAC ot the status
quo as expressed in the DAG.

PS: The ".wales" proposal is actually ".cymru" -- until November it would
have been ".cym" but lost that entitlement in favour of the Cayman Islands.
