Resolution cited uncertainty about date for resolution of Overarching Issues
to satisfaction of the board; difficulty in synchronizing applications
program with EOI; preferring to focus staff on remaining issues;
Resolve to withdraw EOI; and direct CEO to press on with new gTLD program
Harald Alstrand: still concerned about risks of many new gTLDs and wants CEO
to be attentive to those risks.
Bruce Tonkin: confusion about purpose(s) of EOI. Would have given data on #
and nature of strings. Would have informed applicants to improve their
applications. Staff and community resources are being taken away from
underlying problems; so up-or-down vote is the best way to proceed.
Crocker: primary purpose of EOI was to give magnitude of demand;
Raimundo changed his mind on EOI because there was lack of consensus for it.
Resolution Passed: overwhelmingly. Just one No vote from Michael Silber
Michael Silber: EOI had potential benefits and it's a pity its being thrown
