True, my point is that the board can term the application not befitting
to be addressed at the (global arena) by introducing a new TLD but best
addressed the cc level. Hence, if that was the resolution, such an issue
would not be brought to the attention of the board in future.

In as much as there will be a ideal process for handling new TLD
applications, touchy or should i say sensitive matters will seemingly
draw similar debate. The question will still lie on if such issues will
be addressed at the global arena or re-delegated to the local internet
