Message as sent to "firstname.lastname@example.org:
There is certainly validity to the prospect of both open and closed
both the ccTLD and gTLD areas. However, to further divide either
constituencies or the obvious commonalities which occur in both models
appears to be a very inefficient model. The technical and
commonalities far outweigh the differences.
In the TLDA model, a Draft Recommendation proposing a specific
an open/closed difference could be proposed much in the same manner
differing uses of technology are proposed through IETF Internet
This allows for a wide range of opinions to be expressed on a given
while building upon a common technical and administrative base. The
potential of further fractionalizing the constituency groups would
make redundant (and potentially conflicting) many efforts required for
Perhaps, again using the IETF basic model as an example, an approach
be to establish TLDA working groups to address the open/closed model
differences, as well as other areas of tacit incongruity.
I would welcome any feedback on these observations.
