  blah blah blah
  requested TLD - IG . Marketed as Internet Governance.
  Structure will be a non-profit like ICANN.
  Funding will be completely on donations and fees generated by subregistries and blatant warehousing and reselling like ICANN. Target will be foreign governments and ccTLDs and large corporations that could benefit from from the weakening of ICANN.
  Purpose will be to use capital obtained through generally false promises and bring down the top to bottom internet governance imposed by ICANN.
  Technical will be handled solely by those who have left employment by ICANN and the groups having to do business with them.
  Do you think they will accept this enough to allow our group to submit Statements of Interest?

  "In its 18/19 April 2000 statement concerning new
TLDs, the Names Council stated:

"To assist the Board in the task of introducing new
gTLDs, the Names Council recommends that the ICANN
staff invite expressions of interest from parties
seeking to operate any new gTLD registry."

In accordance with that recommendation, the ICANN
staff invites expressions of interest from parties
seeking to operate and/or sponsor any new TLD
registry. Expressions of interest should be brief
(generally no more than ten pages) but descriptive.
All submissions should include self-identification,
brief description of the structure and purpose of the
proposed TLD, and an indication of the likelihood of
submitting a formal application for the proposed TLD.

Although those who submit expressions of interest will
neither be advantaged nor disadvantaged in the formal
application process, as suggested by the Names Council
statement the expressions will be used to assist the
formulation of appropriate policies concerning the
consideration of formal applications.

Please send expressions of interest in electronic form
to tld-interest@xxxxxxxxxx All submissions should be
suitable for public posting."

This was not a bad idea then... it might be a good
idea now...
