Alex possed the following question in response and I responded
as follows: (From the Domain Policy list)
ALex and all,
It depends on who's or what definition you use. And even then
it depends on whom has which of these examples registered. To me
anyway this makes the situation even more confusing. You might
than wish to ask the ICANN BoD or WIPO directly
(See E-Mail addresses in cc above) when, which and who's definition
is currently being used, and what the specific criterion are for
that or those definitions.
