    Just to be clear, Question 7 (a very good question, by the way) was not sent by me, to whom it is attributed, but by Jon_Weinberg. -- Bret

    from Anonymous: What about the pioneer registries? Is it possible to find a formula that will bring these non-ICANN TLDs into the ICANN framework?
    Ans: I don't know whether that is possible. In some sense they were created entirely outside the IANA, and now ICANN, framework and it isn't clear how to incorporate them - especially if there are conflicts among registries offering the same TLD. It seems to me that the only thing ICANN can do is set forth the consensus rules by which new registries are formed and integrated into the ICANN-sponsored root system. Registries that operate outside that structure are simply outside the structure.

    Except... Image Online Design has never gone outside of the IANA process, has been involved with it since 1995, the only conflicts with the name were from last-minute applications by entrenched participants, and they still didn't get the string, at Dr. Cerf's own objections. I don't see any of these points relating to Image Online Design and .Web.

    Answers? I saw non-answers. I, also, will be interested in the results of the ALSC, but am concerned that it is not at all representative of the at-large community.

    I also noticed that Dr. Cerf's mantra about registries working outside the framework are simply "outside" is unchanged. I wonder what the reaction will be when the collisions actually take place and it becomes widely apparent that there "should have been" cooperation. "Offering the same TLD" is going to result in major problems for everyone regardless of whose corporate structure anyone is using. Dr. Cerf knows this.

    It's the same old, same old.
