Thanks, Bruce. 

Just a request that we are careful about  how we reference "WIPO II". 

First, as I was reminded by a country representative who is engaged at WIPO,
he didn't know what WIPO II was. :-) 

But in addition, there is not yet a formal response from ICANN, even though
there have been registry requirements within SOME sponsored gTLDS and within

Hello All,

We should also look at including the input from WIPO-II into the policy
development process on the criteria or conditions associated with new
gTLDs.   Note that the more recent gTLD agreements already have some
restrictions related to country names etc.

Just to be clear - I am not proposing that we pre-empt the outcome of
the PDP with respect to the input from WIPO-II, merely suggesting that
this material be part of the background material.
