Dear Annabeth, dear Carlos,
I agree with Annabeth. RFC 1591 (who doesn't know it by heart: check ietf.org/rfc/rfc1591.txt) cemented the one and only real differentiator in the DNS:That there are ccTLDs; operated and organized by authority  (which may be deligated like in .tv)  of countries/nations. And that these are two character strings. That everything exceeding two characters are gTLDs.
If we want to keep this (rather artificial - but to date well working) BASE order of the DNS; we should refrain from assigning two character gTLDs. It's a TINY amount of potentially available strings anyway. 
The two character vs more than two character distinction needs to be uphold; BOTH WAYS (no three letter ccTLDs).

Hi Carlos

Could I ask you for one clarification? If we open up for some 2-letter/letter combinations in the GNSO process, they will automatically be gTLDs. You don’t think that will disturb the distinction
 we have had from the beginning that 2-characters are ccTLDs and 3 or more gTLDs?

Kind regards,

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

Dear Work Track members,


Please find below the proposed agenda for the WT5 call on Wednesday 8 August at 13:00 UTC:


1. Welcome/Agenda Review/SOI Updates

2. Review of Consensus Call Process and Work Plan

3. Consensus Call on Country and Territory Names

4. Wrap Up - Non-AGB Terms

5. AOB


On our upcoming call, the leadership team will introduce a work plan aimed at wrapping up WT5's work and delivering an Initial Report by the end of September. In maintaining this timeline, the leadership
 is seeking to ensure that Work Track 5 inputs can be effectively integrated into the work of the broader New gTLD Subsequent Procedures PDP Working Group in time for delivery of the PDP's Final Report. A copy of the work plan is attached.


As outlined in the work plan, the leadership team will be holding a series of consensus calls on potential recommendations to include in WT5's Initial Report. These will be introduced in clusters, with the
 first set of recommendations focusing on country and territory names. The draft recommendations, which will be discussed on Wednesday, are attached. Work Track members are encouraged to review and provide
 feedback on these draft recommendations prior to the call on Wednesday. The leadership team will officially open the consensus call on this topic following Wednesday's call. For more information on the consensus call process that will be followed,
 please see the GNSO Working Group Guidelines, Section 3.6:https://gnso.icann.org/sites/default/files/file/field-file-attach/annex-1-gnso-wg-guidelines-18jun18-en.pdf [gnso.icann.org].
