I thought it might help if we had more tools in our toolbox.  The ones we
have aren’t very flexible (although variations could make them more so).
Here’s something a bit different than any of our current tools, and it
might address some ongoing concerns and lead to some possible compromises
(i.e., some people less happy with this vs. others, and other people more

*Notice and Opportunity to Object*:  In this process, the applicant for a
string with geographic meaning would need to provide notice to each
relevant gov/public authority (RGPA) that the string was being applied
for.  The application would go forward, but each RGPA would have a defined
opportunity to object based on standards we would define and filed through
one of the existing objection processes or a variation on an existing
process.  The right to object would expire after a set period of time.  A
letter of support or non-objection would not be required.  We could have
some minimum standard on what constitutes a RGPA, so that applicants would
not be contacting every wide spot in the road.

I look forward to thoughts on this or other alternative tools.

Best regards,
