        <div>For me it highlights a discussion that took place in May
          with regards to the possibility of governments and applicants
          sharing the benefits of a domain name. There was a small group
          who saw this as a possible solution for further discussion but
          it got side tracked by those who didn't. I had supported it
          from the viewpoint of a UN protocol in another area
          completely, but relating the concept to parties being able to
          negotiate how they might share the benefits that could come
          out of the use of a particular geographic term as a domain
          name. This Board decision suggests that some consideration
          should be given to the concept to help to resolve conflicts
          between governments and applicants over geographic terms. </div>
