Isn't it clear that this NC is only intending to be a stop gap NC to
push through recommendations on key issues as quickly as possible
before any serious opposition as a chance to organize?

In light of that, I think you can expect them to only give a cursory
nod to these issues that normally should be taken very seriously.
They intend to only go as far as they MUST go, and to expedite
decision making as quickly as possible.

Did you really expect anything else from a group who is predominately
in the hands of CORE supporters and Trademark interests?

(Clue to those who might not know : Count the number on the NC who
have expressed opposition to the CORE/gTLD-MoU)
