For example L’Oreal hasn’t withdrawn “.salon” – even when the TLD is delegated and they could cash in US $37,000. This raises the question why ICANN doesn’t automatically refund if the TLD is delegated to another party? At least we seem to need policy that once a TLD is delegated to another party: ICANN withdraws (cancels?) automatically and refunds. If ICANN can’t do it today (for lack of policy) then we should create such policy. We should generally avoid to have ANY “not withdrawn” applications unless these are somehow processing in some way. See .idn, .tata, .thai, .africa, .salon, shop !

I believe ICANN Org mentioned that in PIRR (Program Implementation Review Report), and this is indeed an addition that would make sense.
