Re: [wg-b] Common Ground

The relationship between working groups b and c is so close that I do not 
think you can draw a bright line.  The proposed principles offer a way from 
the trademark/noncommercial perspective to create a greater clarity in the 
gTLDs that will help those looking for famous marks and other 
names/titles/organizations/individuals as well.  I think the Principles can 
act as an overlay to the business models and roll-out plans being developed 
in WG-C.
