<P>&nbsp; Again Mr. Dierker seemingly doesn't "<STRONG>Get it</STRONG>".&nbsp; 
The original .MUSEUM registry</P>
<P>agreement is here: <A

 the amended apendicies agreement is here: <A 
<P>which contains the information regarding the <STRONG>Escrow</STRONG>

<P>I pointed out earlier which are indeed a <STRONG>curcial part</STRONG> of 
the proposed RAA for .MUSEUM,</P>
<P>and in which I made note of considerable concern's regarding file format

<P>is <STRONG>not </STRONG>a standard file format, ect...</P>
<P>&nbsp; However despite the obvious missives of Mr. Dierker, it would be wise

<DIV>I made an error in assumption. I assumed that most people get this and 
that it is posted to lists. Wrong. So here is the ICANN alert:</DIV>

 Proposed .MUSEUM sTLD Registry Agreement Posted for 
Public<BR>Comment<BR><BR>31 August 2007<BR><BR>An updated version of the 
proposed .MUSEUM sponsorship agreement is<BR>posted today for public comment. 
The amendment from the previous draft<BR>agreement is a result of significant 
collaboration between the registry<BR>sponsor and community members. The 
updated agreement is posted today with<BR>the intention of submitting it to the 
ICANN Board for approval after<BR>the 30-day comment 
period.<BR><BR>Background<BR><BR>The proposed .MUSEUM sTLD registry agreement 
and appendices were<BR>originally posted for public comment on 2 March 
target=_blank><SPAN id=lw_1188670918_3><FONT 
 After<BR>consultation with the community an amendment was made to Appendix S 
of<BR>the agreement that describes some of the duties and rights of 
the<BR>registry sponsor, MuseDoma. (Amended Proposed .MUSEUM 
 target=_blank><SPAN id=lw_1188670918_4><FONT 
 [PDF, 141K])<BR><BR>During the public comment period that was open through 23 
March 2007,<BR>concern was expressed about proposed language in Part VII of 
Appendix S,<BR>that allowed for up to 5,000 domain names to be directly managed 
by<BR>MuseDoma. This language was created by MuseDoma recognizing that 
the<BR>"wildcard" capability that was allowed in the original agreement 
was<BR>eliminated from this renewal agreement. (For more on "wildcards" 
see,<BR>&lt;<A href="http://www.icann.org/committees/security/sac015.htm";

 27 March 2007, at ICANN's public meeting in <SPAN id=lw_1188670918_6 
style="CURSOR: hand; BORDER-BOTTOM: #0066cc 1px dashed; HEIGHT: 
1em">Lisbon</SPAN>, MuseDoma and the<BR>ICANN Registrar Constituency held a 
public exchange on the purpose of<BR>the proposed language and on various forms 
that language might take.<BR>MuseDoma agreed to propose language in response to 
the public exchange.<BR>There have been additional telephonic conferences among 
some interested<BR>parties since that time.<BR><BR>Amendment<BR><BR>Original 
Language<BR><BR>Sponsor may register up to 5,000 domain names directly with 
the<BR>Registry Operator and keep these names under direct management until 
the<BR>conclusion of its designation by <SPAN id=lw_1188670918_7 style="CURSOR: 
hand; BORDER-BOTTOM: #0066cc 1px dashed; HEIGHT: 1em">ICANN</SPAN> as the 
Sponsor for the Sponsored TLD.<BR><BR>Proposed Language<BR><BR>Recognizing 
that: i) the charter of the .MUSEUM top-level domain is<BR>sufficiently 
restrictive so that it has appeal to a small, identifiable<BR>and limited 
community, and that said restrictions have created conditions<BR>that 
substantially limit market demand and as a result, registrar<BR>uptake; ii) 
MuseDoma is a not-for-profit entity as is the community it is<BR>required to 
serve by the definition of its charter; and iii) MuseDoma<BR>makes available to 
its community members under certain conditions, at no<BR>cost, third-level 
domain names. Therefore, MuseDoma is permitted to<BR>maintain up to 4,000 
domain names directly with the Registry Operator and<BR>keep these names under 
direct management for purposes stated in iii) of<BR>this Section until the 
conclusion of its designation by <SPAN id=lw_1188670918_8 style="CURSOR: hand;

the agreement posted<BR>on 2 March 2007. As previously reported, the proposed 
agreement is for<BR>a ten-year term, and provides for:<BR><BR>* the elimination
