Hello Martin, 

After a first Reading I have a systemic problem with the language added
to the recommendations. May be a style issue because I´m not an English
as a 1st language speaker, or it may be a lack of understanding from my
side of the scope of this WT. 

In any case, for each of the sections that use this language I have the
same comment. 

1. In case of <quote>  This recommendation is a revision to the existing
2007 policy recommendations. <unquote> my comment is that we need
clarity if the existing 2007 policy (GAC? GNSO? other?) recommendations
are explicitly within scope of the SubPro PDP 

2. In case of <quote> The ICANN community may want to consider whether a
future process should be established to determine if, when, and how
specific interested parties, such as relevant government authorities,
may apply for country and territory names. <unquote> my disagreement is
much larger, as I was assuming it was to this WT5 to make a specific
recommendation in that sense and stop the ping pong that we have been
playing since 2012 when th ccNSO WG, and then the joint ccNSO and GNSO
CWG have been avoiding to propose a solution to the issue. What exact
mechanism is the WT5 proposing here? 

Maybe some redrafting may solve my doubts, maybe I'm not seeing the
whole picture. But I have serious considerations about the use of this
specific wording/style in what would be clear cut recommendations. I'm
afraid they don't go beyond the lack of consensus instead of helping to
measure any consensus, because of their restrictive nature and lack of a
clear path forward. 

I just don't agree that the sole recommendation of WT5 that is going to
be measure is a negative one: to restrict delegation of most geographic
names. In my view recommendations should be framed in a positive manner,
if possible. 

Please find attached my comments on the v2 for the record, so I don't
spoil the call 

Best regards
