This is my point exactly. I've seen many a tender rejected for not following the directions. This is a worrying statement about the competence at DCA.
ICANN is probably trying to be fair. But, it does allow a judgement on the merits of their proposal.

In one of my classes where I teach about funding and project applications I refer time and time again to the fact that you have to read the directions before you submit an application. This is basic. Clearly the DCA Trust did not do this and has had to wage a campaign of dubious ethics to rectify their massive screw up.

If they get the basics of the application wrong, what about reading and understanding the RFCs? Or the help files for BIND/DNSSEC etc? Based on what I have seen thus far, the answer is a resounding "No."
