Hi,

To that point (RFP-type of solution):

It seems that in the OVERWHELMING MAJORITY of cases it has been "portfolio applicants" squaring off against each other; and they just wanted a "fair compensation" for "giving up their asset". All of them are the same "good" or "bad": they make the TLD available via registrar channel.

Only a very small percentage of contention sets ended up at the ICANN last resort love-fest. So I think these few cases could be resolved in a RFP style way.......

The question is: Even if ALAC is in agreement with such stipulation; how to convince the rest of ICANN?

Thanks,

Alexander

Christopher:

Although I am not a fan of the idea of an auction of any type, I am warming to the idea that this might be the most feasible alternative.

Of the other candidate solutions, the best would probably be the Request for Proposal (RFP) route.  This would answer the one question that auctions are weakest on - how is this applicant qualified to operate this particular TLD?

Having said that, Requests for Proposal would need to be quite carefully
crafted.      Criteria for selection of an applicant would need to be
carefully and specifically described in order to measure the applicant against the purpose of the new TLD.  This is not easy and, in fact, can be expensive. 

Collection and evaluation of the responses, which is going to involve carefully measuring the response  against the RFP's  criteria to find
“the best fit”   .is another effort that  would need to be considered
and costed out.

Part of that cost, by the way, is the time required to develop the RFP, collect the responses and evaluate them – all of which contribute to the
length of time needed to make a decision.   

My own experience suggests that these costs would  need to be examined and compared to the cost of an auction of whatever type.
