      <p style="margin-bottom:0in" lang="en-US">Thankyou for
        these comments.</p>
      <p style="margin-bottom:0in" lang="en-US">@ Maureen : In
        my
        view, the principal and priority issue in ICANN's strategic plan
        is
        to maintain the credibility and global acceptability of the
        multi-stakeholder system. Ensuring that there is a permanent
        balance
        in the ICANN decision making processes respecting the public
        interest, is an essential factor to that effect. In practice
        ALAC is
        the only multi-stakeholder entity that is able to achieve that.
        Otherwise, if ICANN continues to be driven primarily by the
        interests
        of incumbent operators, sooner or later the multi-stakeholder
        model
        will crack, for lack of international acceptability. <br>
        <br>
        Consequently
        I maintain that the issue of economic balance of interests
        within
        the multi-stakeholder community should be up front as a primary
        strategic objective for <a href="http://ICANN.org" target="_blank">ICANN.org</a> and the ICANN Community.,
        supported, indeed demanded by ALAC.<br>
        <br>
        @Kalil :
        Noted ; I am aware of what you say, but it is not correct.
        Whether we call ICANN a 'regulator' or not, (or something else
        in
        another language), I don't care, but the fact is that the power
        that
        the ICANN Community and <a href="http://ICANN.org" target="_blank">ICANN.org</a> exercise over the
        allocation of DNS
        resources and the operators' business models exceeds that of
        official
        Regulators in several other sectors. For example, the ITU's
        powers
        over spectrum ; the national telecommunications Regulators over
        mobile phone licenses etc. </p>
      <p style="margin-bottom:0in" lang="en-US">Consequently,.
        I maintain my position.</p>

                            mulltistakeholder model of governance.</font></span></b></font></font></font></p>
              <div lang="en-US">I would wish to see a stronger
                statement that ICANN's credibility as the DNS Regulator
                requires greater efforts to ensure the balance of
                interests notably with regard to users and the public
                interest. In this context, I refer specifically to the
                comment received by the new gTLD PDP from the Public
                Interest Community :</div>
              <div lang="en-US"><< 5. In setting up a
                host of 'procedural changes' that amount to a capture of
                the New gTLD Process by large incumbent portfolio
                applicants … This set of self-interested procedural
                initiatives defy the original goals of the new gTLD
                process. … These … goals will not be achieved by many of
                the policies being proposed which appear designed to
                support the drafters – largely incumbent registries…
                >></div>
              <p style="margin-bottom:0in" lang="en-US">I
                consider that ALAC should give positive support to the
                concerns voiced by the Public Interest Community, not
                least because At Large is the only multistakeholder
                constituency with the presence and mandate to ensure the
                balance of interests in the PDP for the users and the
                public interest.<br>
                <br>
                In this context may I recall my previous postings about
                the essential benchmarks of the public interest in the
                new gTLD PDP:</p>
              <p style="margin-bottom:0in" lang="en-US">1.
                 Incumbent operators should not be allowed to determine
                the terms and conditions of access to TLDs by new
                entrants.</p>
              <p style="margin-bottom:0in" lang="en-US">2.
                'Portfolio' applications should be strongly discouraged,
                if not banned.</p>
              <p style="margin-bottom:0in" lang="en-US">3.
                The economic rent to a 'Good Name' should accrue to the
                Registrant(s). They should not be burdened by fees and
                charges arising, notably, from auctions. The Registry
                has no business paying for, nor seeking compensation
                for, artificially excessive costs of registering a new
                TLD. The costs to Registrants should be moderated in
                consequence.</p>
              <p style="margin-bottom:0in" lang="en-US">I
                would be glad if the above considerations were included
                in the ALAC response to the Strategic Plan.<br>
                <br>
                Could I also  say that, otherwise, ALAC may appear -  to
                the outside world - as complicit in a degree of
                unhealthy collusion among the incumbent operators. This
                should not go on.</p>
