IDN Variant TLDs in the new gTLD Program

- While exceptions have been made for CNNIC and TWNIC, these were supported
by the significant expertise of both these registry operators in this area – there is
no guarantee that gTLD applicants hold the same expertise.

- There is a fundamental difference in the environments and considerations
between the ccTLD and gTLD spaces in considering whether a variant should be
delegated. For example, the delegation of ccTLDs is restricted to country and
territory names.

- Another factor that may be considered, but is not dispositive, is that the Chinese
language variants are not visually similar, differentiating them from many variants
that might be requested.

- The experiences gained with these exceptions have yet not been reviewed or
discussed in the community. These implementations were intended to serve as a
case-study for the global variant TLD management requirements. More time is
necessary to conduct such studies, but indications are that the variant TLDs, such
as the Chinese, are functioning adequately with the registry manager having
appropriate registration rules in place, and running the variant TLD zones in a
coordinated effort.


- Developing sets of effective and enforceable controls to ensure a good user
experience is difficult, especially without the learning of the first variant
delegations. Allowing for delegation of new gTLD variants without knowledge of
possible outcomes and without additional protections in place increases the
vulnerabilities to users and the risks to ICANN.

Re: IDN Variant TLDs in the new gTLD Program

So Verisign is not able to apply for .ком when the new gTLD application start because variant issues are yet to be sorted out, but someone else could apply for .ком as a "new gTLD", triggering a "contention issue". Great.

I believe you are right. Variant tlds would be com in simp chinese vs trad, or whatever tld in arabic with and without hamza, in devnagari it would be with and without the tone mark or whatever they call the small dot to show tones of foreign words. Im on my phone - will try to provide examples later
