Re: ICANN to launch trial testing of IDNs forTop Level Domains in the third

My thoughts on recent events, since the infamous mistaken press release seems to have rekindled debate on DNAME mapping vs new namespaces:

China keeps the propaganda machine humming to put pressure on furthering their long-term objective, which is control of ICANN or the creation of a competing authority. I doubt they will do anything drastic in the short or medium term. Their objectives are mapped-out measured in decades.

This sabre rattling has been their modus operandi to try and direct political and economic policy in Taiwan, Hong Kong and to a lesser extent, Macau, for years.

My guess is that 'slip-up' of a press release was not a slip-up. It was part of their political machine in action and their self-introduction to the world -- it worked well -- witness the firestorm that followed and the lemmings that fell over themselves propagating the false info in their blogs. If history is any indication, we'll see more of this and I won't be losing any sleep over it.
