I am not an executive at a registry, registrar or any other company. i am currently unemployed and have been for 18 months
My main concern with the ALAC Scorecard paper is that it asks for a fundamental restructuring of the applicant selection process - i.e. it asks for a method whereby applications will be 'limited'. This is not something the GAC have asked for in their Scorecard, and in my opinion it would require at least nine months of policy and drafting work to try and find an equitable procedure for such limitation.
As there has been no plan to limit in the last three versions of the AG I think there are more potential applicants than whatever limitation number is decided. Simply put, this limitation mechanism would need to find a rationale way for us to decide that the .NYC application (say) was allowed proceed, and the .PARIS application (say) was not.
'Limitation' is a position the ALAC is free to endorse, but it's not clear to me that ALAC members appreciate the implication of the recommendation. Does general ALAC membership understand that this recommendation is not requested by the GAC and would substantially delay AG approval?

Registries are amply represented by other constituencies in ICANN. They hardly need NARALO to get their points across as "individual Internet users."
