William, as you know, I've spoken in support of the need for the process you
are articulating. And that the issue needs to be how, not how many. I think
you will recall that. thanks for the posting. Marilyn

The problem is that you are not showing a willingness to "compromise."
Compromise is a give and take, we know your firm position, you know what
Milton's is, and you know what mine is. What we all need to do is start
way, and actually agreeing to compromise principles.
What makes me say that you are not seeking compromise in good faith is that
have not yet endorsed any proposal beyond the 1 new GLTD one you mention in
your email. This is not a compromise position, Marilyn. This is an
As long as you stick to that rigid position, and don't participate in
some compromise, you are not working to achieve consensus, but are working
against it. This is what bothers me about your comments recently.
So lets talk about what your concerns are that cause you to stay to your One
TLD position, and see how those concerns can be addressed in a proposal that
will be acceptable to a broad base of this workgroups participants,
silent and not so silent.
It is still my strong belief that a set of contractual obligations can be
established to address the concerns that all of us have raised, and that the
"evaluation" period can be used to examine the success of those registry
contracts and determine if any modifications need to be made to them.
And in the absence of any compelling reason to the contrary, to permit the
continued introduction of new gTLDs.
We need to stop the issue of HOW MANY tlds right now. First we have to come
with the method in which a new TLD will be operated, and the requirements
will have to live under. THEN, when those who advocate a lot and those
advocate a few or one or none can see how their concerns were addressed, we
move on to the question of how many. To make a decision on this before we
decided under what procedures and requirements they will operate under is
placing the cart before the horse, and guaranteeing that this group will
reach consensus. Those with real (and legitimate, I might add) concerns
matters relating to intellectual property, can see how their concerns are
addressed, and may become more friendly to the idea of more than one new
Those that are concerned that by adopting too few at the beginning creates a
risk that only a few new TLDs will be created, and that in effect a truly
competitive market will not be established, can see that their concerns have
been addressed, and be more willing to see the number of initial ones
But to get here we have to address the operating procedures and
Let's get to work on it!
