I object to the form, but agree that the initial rollout should include
both generic, non-chartered TLDs and chartered TLDs.
If I may vote as to the substance, then my vote is YES. However, if I'm
forced to adhere to the item as worded, I cannot assent to it.

I vote NO. This is beyond the scope of this WG, and should not be
delegated to another WG as this is a technical, not policy, issue.
Furthermore, I do not believe this belongs in ICANN's hands at all --
it is correctly handled by the IETF group already working on this
issue. ICANN should be completely hands-off on this.
