I'm still confused what their multi million dollar budget for IDNs goes towards each year.... Doesn't seem we are getting too much out of ICANN within reasonable timeframes.

Re: IDN TLD Variants work continues

>>STEVE DELBIANCO: Steve Delbianco for Net Choice Coalition.
Carlos, you said your focus on who was all about people. I feel as if
talking about just applicants as people, you missed the fact that 56%
of the people on the planet don't use the Latin script as their
primary language. And until this year, they've had zero capability to
do a URL, domain name, or e-mail address. So I have a question, if
the who is the people, we aren't really serving them today with
anything but a couple of IDN ccTLDs. And what I'm hearing this week,
it would be one or two years before the gTLD IDNs can serve these
people. So I saw a little bit of a clash, if the who we're serving
are the people, it may be necessary to give incentives to companies to
launch their gTLDs in versions of other languages that are IDNs or
they're just not going to do it. They're not going to spend 2- to
$400,000 to serve those people. So how does that clash between the
first group that said we wouldn't serve, say, a commercial applicant,
even though we know they're serving the people that need it most?


>>CHUCK GOMES: My name is Chuck Gomes. I have a question with
regard to the bundling idea with regard to underserved language
communities.

New gTLD applicants as well as even existing registries who want to
offer IDN gTLDs are not in need of special support with regard to
financial support or like that, but they would be very unlikely to be
able to justify, from a business point of view, offering their
versions of their IDN TLDs and pay 185,000 fee, et cetera, to
underserved language community.

Is it the intent or even consideration, I know they are not definite
recommendations yet, of the working group to include that kind of
bundling opportunity in your recommendation?

Re: IDN TLD Variants work continues

Taking bets on idn.idn live no later then dec 25,2011.
I don't think that the idn gtld's will remain attached to the ascii new gtld's for much longer which should allow this to once and for all be completed.
