Four Promises ICANN Must Meet with New Top-Level Domains

2) Serving the Next Billion Internet Users. Internationalized domain names (IDNs) are the major benefit ICANN has promised to global Internet users. Of all the gTLDs that will be created in the new gTLD process, IDNs have the greatest potential to reach the next billion, most of whom don't use the Latin alphabet as their primary script. But based on early activity in the new gTLD community, it seems like IDN applications will represent only a small fraction of the total applicant pool. It would be missed opportunity if IDN users did not see recognizable TLDs coming out of this new gTLD program. ICANN has fielded a range of proposals to increase IDNs in this round (including targeted discounts and bundling of applications) but has thus far shown no interest. Even a little bit of progress on this front could pay huge dividends to underserved Internet users, and to the governments that represent them at the UN.

To be honest, if they sort out the dot Com issue, I don't think most people will give a flying f*ck.
