Thanks Edmon.  Your suggested edits look pretty good overall but I do
have one question regarding the following new question you suggest
adding in 4.b.(i): "For example, should the IDN ccTLD manager be
required to engage in an understanding with ICANN?" What does it mean to
'engage in an understanding'?

Hi Everyone,

Attached please find edits I will be sending to the IDNC regarding the
Initial Report circulated to the group earlier.

Key points that I have edited in include:
- consideration that requirements and process for Fast Track may be
different from the longer term process
- as such, certain requirements such as requiring an explicit commitment
with ICANN, may be appropriate for the Fast Track even as it may not be
necessary for the longer term process
- added questions on whether a list of potential TLD strings should be
compiled for the Fast Track
- adherence to ICANN IDN Guidelines as a requirement
- consideration for policies to curb phishing and avoid conflicts due to
- restructured slightly the flow of the document to identify the topics
	- string selection
		- requirements
		- process
	- ccTLD manager determination
		- requirements
		- process
- avoidance of TLD strings that maybe confusingly similar to existing

Comments welcome as usual.
