[registrars] WG-B Idea - Thumbs up or Thumbs down

Sorry for my quietness of late but I have been in Colorado at the
International Trademark Association. I have been pleasantly surprised by the
number of ICANN registrars that have been in attendance. I almost feel like
I am at an ICANN meeting.

In light of the discussions last week about new ideas in additional to the
two Sunrise Proposals (all trademarks v.s. famous trademark list) I have
been talking to the registrars in attendance about other potential
solutions. One of the ideas that surfaced is the following. A 30 day waiting
period after a domain name is registered before it is activated. Therefore
there is no need for lists or sunrise periods.

I know this idea has been discussed in the past, however, I believe it is
important to leave no stone unturned and consider this proposal in light of
what is currently transpiring.

Yea or Nay?


P.S. For those that have advocated the creation of a famous marks list,
based upon what I have heard in the rumor mill among the trademark types,
the creation of such a list in the near foreseeable future (1-2 years) would
be highly unlikely.
