[ga-roots] Scotland loses as .scot.uk bid is turned down
What I found most interesting was the justification for not allowing
ScotNom proposal to be accepted.
"The Nominet executive has indicated that the application is more
likely to succeed if ScotNom hands over the control of .scot.uk to
Nominet, who already controls .co.uk and .org.uk. It is currently
claiming that the proposal does not comply with the requirement
for a third party registry to "demonstrate it as a suitably neutral and
impartial body by a significant number of potential Registrants in
the SLD, and that it can comply with the policy." "
Possibly the DNSO should weigh in on this? Maybe Scotland
needs its own ccTLD or gTLD in another Root structure...
