My comments to today's call: 

1. "The ICANN Community may want to consider whether a future process
should be established or determine if, when, and how specific interested
parties, such as relevant government authorities, may apply for country
and territory names" This paragraph is the only sensible part of a
forward-looking recommendation and should/could be redrafted. I wonder
if it could be enhanced, or if the only way to go is deletion as CW
suggested.   A shorter more concise version? A more "liberal" version?
How about: "ICANN may consider applications by specific interested
parties, such as relevant authorities, of strings that are not current
or future countries or territories."  Ps: The text in Recommendation 1
"reserving ALL two character letter letter" combinations-  can be
enhanced.  I wonder if it's truly ALL, or if the potential for future
countries and potential combinations is really much less broad? Could
that be qualified somehow? I can't think of a future .xx or .ññ country
or territory and maybe we could tweak the language to open this a bit
and garner broad community support to move forward. 

2. Other than recommendation #1, I object strongly the text to "keep geo
names from the delegation" in any other recommedation, unless a clear
rationale is added to the recommendation 

3. I hope no draft goes out before a substantial non-AGB names
discussion has taken place, including to geographic related, cultural,
linguistic and other social  elements, ,like Apache Nation 

Best regards
