I like what Jon has done here. The revisions in #1 and #2 offer ICANN
Board a bit more procedural substance than the original principles.

I don't really agree with this. I think it confuses the issue of non-ASCII
domain names with the issue of new TLDs that are based on non-English
languages (e.g., ".banco"). The first is an issue for IETF, the second ICANN
can do regardless of how IDN comes out.
