Re: ICANN Strategic Plan 2011-2014: Four Strategic Focus Areas

implementation of IDNs, through the Fast Track, new gTLDs, and IDN Policy Development Process

currently conducted in the ccNSO. New gTLDs offer the opportunity for more communities and
languages to be represented on the Internet and for expanded customer choice for domain name
registrations. ICANN will encourage the ccTLD community to provide awareness programs on the
added-value of introducing ccIDNs and will also provide effective program management for the
successful deployment of IDNs through the New gTLD
and ccTLD Programs. ICANN will work with the
ccTLD community to introduce mechanism (eg. IDN regional consultants, blogs, IDN application forums)
that will assist in expanding the deployment and success of IDNs globally."

...and on page 9:

"Strategic Metrics: In summary, the strategic metrics for the Focus Area of Competition, consumer trust
and consumer choice are:
• Launch of the new gTLD program and timely processing of applications
• Number of IDN ccTLDs delegated during the period of the plan
• New gTLDs and IDN Fast Track: Implementation of measures of success that align with
ICANN core vales and original program objectives"


Sounds like IDN gTLD program is being fast tracked?
No. As we are painfully aware, the fast track program is for ccTLDs. There is no other fast track program. Do you remember when Tina Dam turned up the last time on this forum? Is was like "silly you guys for thinking IDN.com had anything to do with it ......"
