Re: [nc-deletes] Minutes - Conference Call, November 15

Given the issues that arose in the context of approving the WLS (issues that
are now before the Reconsideration Committee), I wonder whether we ought to
have Louis Touton provide us an early opinion on whether, in his judgment,
the DNSO could mandate a uniform re-allocation policy across all gTLDs. We
may not wish to step into the "reallocation" minefield if it's beyond the
scope of what we can do. Any thoughts?

The language from the terms of reference is: "3. determine whether a uniform
delete and re-allocation process by gtld registries following receipt of a
delete command from a registrar is desirable, and if so, recommend an
appropriate process."
