Yes, Fiona makes entirely clear that add "consumer trust" to the general
Mission, without specifically limiting it the new gTLD, cannot be
justified as an implementation of the AoC.

Since we were only considering AoC implementation and not general
extensions of the Mission, this proposal is now dead, not only for now
but also for WS2, I quite agree.
