    "What ever happens, I continue to wish that IANA would at least give public notice of every request for re-delegation it receives." We agree. The recent ITU ccTLD workshop with Member States held in Geneva on 3-4 March 2003, cf. http://www.itu.int/itudoc/itu-t/workshop/cctld/, gave a simple opportunity to the ITU organizers to discover that "Approximately 15% (35 of 242) ADMIN CONTACTS were invalid (the E-Mail address was not valid)", cf.http://www.itu.int/itudoc/itu-t/workshop/cctld/ cctld027.html. Subsequently, and for the first time since years, the ICANN staff provided an explanation, cf. http://www.itu.int/itudoc/itu-t/workshop/cctld/027 add1.html, stating than 14 ccTLD Registries were in redelegation situation, and several other cases were known problems. There is no explicit list - one need to correlate the ITU table with ICANN/IANA answers to get the pending redelegations. Elisabeth Porteneuve

    Everything here is sinister: current .iq situation, offers of help, and no better perspective.

    The title here, and the press coverage elsewhere, is unfortunate. There are classes of cctld registries with operational issues, .iq is only slightly stranger than most. Co-location of the corporate, and operational forms of the delegations of two belligerent states within one of them was not good long-term planning, by the delegees, or by the IANA, and it isn't improved by a period of actual belligerency between the associated states. I can't say that I don't think that .us couldn't be improved by well-intentioned folks in Bagdad, the current operator leaves a bit to be desired, but that shouldn't be the first mechanism at hand. I think the IANA's re-delegation claim queue should be transparent to the cctld constituency, or some body to which it delegates this responsibility. I would not like to see it become yet another venue for gaming the process, and assist in the commercial repurposing of cctlds, for whatever reason. The motivation for an "auction-off-iq" is not very different from other beneficiary claims made by many of the repurposed cctld operators. Eric Brunner-Williams
