[ga-roots] Scotland loses as .scot.uk bid is turned down


  See: http://www.zdnet.co.uk/news/2001/17/ns-22650.html

  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...
