It's OK to have an appeal process but this leaves some rather important
questions open, e.g.

* Who pays for the appeal?  Is it like UDRP where the parties split the cost, or
is it all ICANN?

* I expect that no matter what we say, most appeals will in fact be applicants
who are unhappy that they didn't get funded.  Is there a way to dispose of
obviously bogus appeals efficiently?  Obviously bogus means things like not
identifying any process failure other than saying no.
