[gtld-tech] Update to reserved names list for new gTLDs

This was a topic discussed by the New TLD Applicant Group and Registry Stakeholder Group who all agree that we need this list from ICANN.

ICANN - Please advise as to when you all can provide the authoritative list that you will hold registries accountable to?  Any discretion left to the operators will be a disaster from a compliance perspective and places an unfair and unrealistic burden on the registries.

I second Gavin's request.  Can ICANN please provide an authoritative list of the reserved names in a single consistent readable form based on what is defined in Specification 5 of the Registry Agreement <http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/applicants/agb/agreement-approved-02jul13-en.
