In response to:

That many Registrants will be offered Preferential Registration Eligibility* that allows them to register or reserve the equivalent of their domain name at the second level.

We believe the complexity of reservations far outweigh the benefits. The Preferential Registration Period already provides time for name holders to make a decision without requiring any action on their part.

That all registrations will be done via Registrars and all reservations and conflicts will be dealt with via DNCL.

In the event that reservations do proceed, we believe they should be handled via Registrars as they have existing process and systems to communicate and support customers that wish to take this option.

Best Regards,
