Please indicate your response to Preliminary Recommendation 1.1
Support Recommendation intent with wording change
If you support the intent of Preliminary Recommendation 1.1 but think it requires a wording change, please provide your revised wording and reason here.

Revised Wording: The RZ-LGR must be the sole source to calculate the variant labels and disposition values for all existing delegated gTLDs.

Reason: Instead of limiting the rec to just gTLDs delegated from the 2012 round, apply it to all existing delegated gTLDs per the charter question.

Are there any comments or issues you would like to raise pertaining to the Rationale for Preliminary Recommendation 1.1? If yes, please provide your comments here.


Please indicate your response to Preliminary Recommendation 2.1
Support Recommendation intent with wording change
If you support the intent of Preliminary Recommendation 2.1 but think it requires a wording change, please provide your revised wording and reason here.

Revised Wording: Any allocatable variant label of an existing gTLD, as calculated by the RZ-LGR, can only be allocated to the registry operator of the existing gTLD or withheld for possible allocation only to that registry operator.

Reason: Instead of limiting the rec to just gTLDs delegated from the 2012 round, apply it to all existing delegated gTLDs per the charter question.

Are there any comments or issues you would like to raise pertaining to the Section 3: Glossary (pages 12–23) of the Initial Report? If yes, please provide your comments here.

The ALAC appreciates and is supportive of the EPDP’s effort in generating a Glossary of terms which explains their usage by the EPDP in shaping its recommendations and implementation guidance. We are comfortable with the descriptions provided, noting that the terms have been presented in a form that would enable relative novices to comprehend them, and that the full, technical definitions are linked to the term.

Other Comments

See attachment for comments on Root Zone - Label Generation Rule (RZ-LGR), Same-Entity Principle, Application Fee Regime for Variants, and Glossary (glossary comments are also mentioned in this form).
