[comments-wgb] RE: New TLD's considered
I followed the Cairo conference and was not surprised that the majority of
time and energy was spent on new TLD's. Yet no action was taken even tho I
believe that this consideration was worthy of comment prior to Cairo
Now, I understand that the meeting in Japan; that new TLD's will be a

network. I am a subscriber of dot web, com and net; and I hope that my
subscription to these registries has an opportunity to run as described. I
do not entertain at any time to recreate the wheel but now we need to test
drive this vehicle and get others going.
