I agree to (4) and (5) as priority issues.
But I want to pinpoint the following issues as priorities than the
other things. a. and b. has to do with the collision with national laws. 
And c. d. e. has some implications of user's rights.
Please take into account this concerns given the different legal context 
and our constituency's raison d'etre.

a. - Should the policy be amended to privide guidance regarding the
interpretation of "confusingly similarity"?

b. - Should the policy address the question of whether "holding"  
constitutes "use"?

c. - Should "settlement negotiation" communications be excluded as
permissible evidence of bad faith?

d. - Should administrative panel decisions have precedntial effect?

e. - Should "cancellation" (deletion of the registration - allowing
subsequent re-registration by anybody) contiune to be an available remedy?
