Dear Michael:

While I agree it is a new concept, to a degree it was anticipated by the 
IAHC.  The original concept was for a 60 day waiting period before *any* 
new SLD/gTLD would be delegated.  That caused a great uproar in the 
Internet community.  It was softened to a voluntary 60 day delay.  However, 
the registrant would be disadvantaged in case the registration was 
challenged if he/she had refused the voluntary 60 day delay.

I like your proposal.

Regards, BobC, who still likes the X, Y, Z proposal.
