RE: [wg-review] 3. [Constituencies] Reformulation Questions
...and I'm open to suggestions on how to clarify this...
ICANN broke down applications into categories that had several basic characteristics:
1-gTLDs (in the traditional sense, .info, .global)
2-gTLDs that require certain conditions be met to obtain a domain (.pro, .law)
3-gTLDs that have no conditions to obtain a domain, but have content guidelines/restrictions (.kids, .xxx)
4-gTLDs that have a specific, non-traditional purpose (.tel, .geo)
My understanding is that "chartered" TLDs are those in item #2, not 1, 3, and 4. I believe what is being suggested is essentially a new classification of TLD, the sTLD, that would incorporate 1, 3, and 4.

Ah, how would you define "specialized TLDs" then? I was using the term
synonym, and clarification is appreciated :)
