Well it is symptomatic of the "laissez faire" approach of ICANN management, that almost three years after launch, the .biz registry has NO "Proof of Concept" report presented on the ICANN website, as is concerned here:
The Registries were obliged, by Appendix U of their Agreements with ICANN, to submit detailed and specific Registry Reports, as you can see in the .biz agreement here:
http://www.icann.org/tlds/agreements/biz/registry- agmt-appu-11may01.htm [icann.org]
According to the terms of this agreement, the Reports should have been in almost 2 years ago. I asked Stuart Lynn in Summer 2002, Autumn 2002, Spring 2003 why reports were missing. His response was that staff had been "too busy" to put them up on the website.
Does it take 2 years to put some text up on a website?
Or did Neulevel simply not submit the "Proof of Concept Reports"?
Either way, ICANN has failed to get significant information published so that constituencies can make informed analyses and judgements about how things could be done better.
It is exactly because of this "laissez faire" attitude that I am pressing for Marion Sapiro's commissioned Report to be published for all to see.
