Identification of specific areas for detailed review and additional work on IDN ccTLD overall proposed policy.

 

The included tables are intended to assist you in capturing issues you have identified that need to be reviewed in more detail.

If you want to use please list the topic itself in the second column, and use the third column to refer to the specific section in the Board Report ( for example, section Section 2.1.4 C.). What would be most helpful is if you include a your comment, question rationale etc. (fourth column).  This will provide a basis for first a discussion by the review team and once agreed a  rationale to advise the Council and broader community to undertake a more detailed review. The final column is for later discussion and alludes to the method proposed to undertake the follow-up action. This could be a review and amendment of the relevant section as part of a ccNSO PDP and or joint effort and feeding into a ccNSO PDP.

 

Please note that the Board report is the result of a ccNSO PDP, which concluded in an adoption in 2013 of the proposed policy recommendations by the members of the ccNSO!

Proposed mechanism to resolve issues

1.

Creation of list over time. The purpose of creating and maintaining such a table is to maintain an authoritative record of all relevant characteristics relating to the selected string and act appropriately if one of the characteristics changes over time

Section 2.1.4 C.

It is questionable whether this mechanism still makes sense in current context.

Address through PDP

2

Review of Policy . Review policy every 5 years after implementation

Section 2.1.4 D.

Is review warranted every 5 years? What should be scope of such a review? Should timing be better defined.

Address through PDP

3

Permanent IDN ccTLD Advisory Panel. Permanent IDN ccTLD Advisory Panel is appointed to assist and provide guidance to ICANN staff and the Board on the interpretation of the overall policy

Section 2.1.4 G

Current practice around implementation includes public comments etc. Creating such a permanent advisory panel, could be difficult

What is trigger/are trigger event(s) for Retirement of IDNccTLD?

 

The retirement of ASCII ccTLD is triggered by the removal of the country code form the ISO 3166-1 list. This may be caused by significant change of name of the country or territory, which results in a need to change the two-letter code and removal of former. Looking at the selection criteria, question is which, if any, of the listed criteria may/should cause the retirement of an IDNccTLD, and cause the retirement policy to become applicable.

 

Address through a PDP.
