3.Similarly-situated entities should be treated similarly. In
particular, registries and registrars (whether gTLD or ccTLD) competing
in the global marketplace should be subject to the same rules.
This first sentence is a righteous truth. However ccTLDs are subject to
the rules that there sovereign places upon them and in the case of the
ICANN gTLDs there is no governmental oversight so they are not
similarly-situated. Further we have throughout history recognized that
in a BTA situation the developing country is given some latitude in
order to level the playing field. Further the whois and the UDRP
violate many country's rules and laws on privacy and trademark, and
imposing that upon them is a violation of too many treaties to count.
10.ccTLDs should sign contracts that require them to abide by consensus
policies on issues for which central and coordinated resolution is
necessary to assure stable interoperability of the domain name system.
This is very very very verisign. If you read the above linked document
you will find that they are also attempting to define consensus as
something that they with a contract with ICANN approve.
No we must maintain the sovereignty of each ccTLD as a nations own
province shall decide.
