Applicant Responses to GAC Advice from the Beijing Communiqué have been made public by ICANN

In the GAC Beijing Communiqué [PDF, 156 KB], the Governmental Advisory Committee (GAC) issued advice to the ICANN Board of Directors regarding New gTLD applications. My initial response was that this advice will derail the whole process. I don’t see how all this confusion can be resolved in a timely manner. ICANN notified applicants and the community about the GAC’s advice on 18 April 2013, thus opening a 21-day applicant response period. 722 applicant responses have just been made public.
