thanks fort he new proposal.
However, the issue with singling out one category of applications remains and will lead to more confusion than clarity. Also, the new proposal lacks the clarification I added with the definite list of cities. Further, negating that there are definite lists of cities seems to be inaccurate in light of the lists which have been proposed over time in the WG.
We do not support the proposal.

Betreff: [Gnso-newgtld-wg-wt5] Follow up on non-capital city names
Just to follow up on the text which I think could combine the two proposals on non-capital city names. The text additional to the 2012 AGB is in blue. I have incorporated the list from Katrin's proposal into the preamble and the national legislation reference remains in the body of the provision.
Hoping we can come to agreement on this!
2. An application for a city name, where the applicant declares that it intends to use the gTLD for purposes associated with the city name.
City names present challenges because city names may also be generic terms or brand names, and in many cases city names are not unique. Unlike other types of geographic names, there are no established lists that can be used as objective references in the evaluation process. However, applicants may find it useful to review the 2017 UN Demographic Yearbook Table 8 to find a list of city names with more than 100,000 inhabitants as a reference point https://unstats.un.org/unsd/<https://unstats.un.org/unsd/demographic-social/products/dyb/documents/dyb2017/table08.pdf>demographic-social<https://unstats.un.org/unsd/demographic-social/products/dyb/documents/dyb2017/table08.pdf>/products/dyb/documents/dyb2017/table08.pdf<https://unstats.un.org/unsd/demographic-social/products/dyb/documents/dyb2017/table08.pdf>. Thus, city names are not universally protected. However, the process does provide a means for cities and applicants to work together where desired.
An application for a city name will be subject to the geographic names requirements (i.e., will require documentation of support or non-objection from the relevant governments or public authorities) if:
1. It is clear from applicant statements within the application that the applicant will use the TLD primarily for purposes associated with the city name. For the avoidance of doubt, if an applicant declares in their application that they will operate the TLD exclusively as a dotBrand, then this is not a use of the TLD for "purposes associated with the city name"; and
2. The applied-for string is an exact match of a city name as listed on official city documents or as set out in national legislation designating the place as a city.
