Let's not throw stones here and make personal attacks.  Virtually everyone on this list and participating in this WG represents some interest.  One could point to you as a speculator whose primary interest is in ensuring as many domain names as possible are available to be speculated.  But this is not helpful.

With respect to 130 sunrise registrations over TLD, it is not useful or fair to average the numbers because many of the new TLDs do not have much value to brands (or arguably anyone else for that matter based on registration numbers).  Brands (at least those whose were are of and understood sunrise) were more active in sunrise in the TLDs that represented more significant risks to them, which likely differed by brand, and was determined by factors such as risk tolerance and whether the string was related to the goods and services for which the mark was used.

Furthermore, as others have stated, how many times the RPM was used Oded not necessarily equate to the RPMs value.
