[comments-gtlds] New gTLDs

I would like to associate myself totally with the views expressed by
Caroline Chicoine that no new gTLDs should be introduced until 1) the
new UDRP and its implementing rules are in place and have proven
themselves to be effective and 2) a workable system for protecting
famous marks is in place and has also proven to be effective. There is
simply no urgent need to add huge numbers of gTLDs at this time. What is
urgently needed is the initiation of a process to develop a system to
determine which famous marks are deserving of protection and how such
protection should be implemented.
