I would add to the end of the Consumer Trust definition. "ICANN, and
relevant law."  Thanks.

i would add a clause to "Competition" that provides registrants with
multiple registrars, in addition to TLDs.

Thanks again to Philip for his initial draft. The attached markup builds on
Philip's work in proposing these definitions:


Proposed definition for Competition in the context of the DNS and new gTLDs:

Competition is the availability of multiple suitable TLDs where registrants
may seek their desired domain name at reasonable prices and terms.


Proposed definition for Consumer Trust in the context of the DNS and new

Consumer Trust is the perceived integrity of domain name registrations such
that Internet users have confidence that a domain name is held to the
advertised purpose and standards of the TLD operator.


Proposed definition for Consumer Choice in the context of the DNS and new

Consumer Choice is the availability of TLDs that offer competing
propositions as the purpose and integrity of their domain name registrants.
