digital archery & batching

Steve Metalitz of the IP constituency writes to the ICANN board asking digital archery to be replaced by something simpler

http://www.icann.org/en/news/correspondence


Even more interesting however is the Internet Society of China who sent a letter both in english and chinese completely slamming the board's decision to go with digital archery. The letter covers everything, from why the decision was not submitted to the community to contentious strings in effect having more chances of being batched first. The letter proposes that IDN TLD be batched first.

4.2 The introduction of IDNs in top-level is a big innovation of the Internet and the development of IDN ccTLD in some countries and regions have proved that. Internet Society of China consider that, the allowance of IDN in new gTLD would promote the diversity of culture greatly. Moreover, due to the diversity of IDN top domain name itself, the possibility of contention of become smaller, especially represented by Chinese top domain names with its plentiful combination forms, so it is less possible to cause confusion. And some common sense has been formed within social groups to avoid contention, so Internet Society of China hope ICANN should consider the diversity of geography as well as language and put forward prior policies for IDN TLDs to protect the rights and benefits of applicants. Therefore, ICANN should take priority upon IDN applications in first round of new gTLD.


The full letter is worth reading.

Re: digital archery & batching

Thanks Squirrel. Page 1 (Comments from Internet Society of China to ICANN): "Bathing is very important and directly relate to the benefits of each party participate in this plan."

Sounds like they cleverly substituted "bathing" in place of "batching" and want to communicate a subliminal message to ICANN that they stink (ie needing a bath) and ICANN needs to clean up their act.

Re: digital archery & batching

I agree that bathing is important.

Regarding digital archery:

It could have been better for us (IDNs first) but it could have been worse (lottery) just as well.

This is like a penalty shootout Germany vs. England with Verisign beeing Germany.
