Processing this data in the time available presented a number of challenges. Here's an overview of what was done, how it was done and the initial findings. Some of these identify potential subjects for further study and these are explained too.

Using new generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs) to add semantics to the DNS root is a semantic enhancement to the Internet's oldest namespace. However, it is because DNS is such a trusted resource that prudence is warranted in any major change.

This talk presents an overview of a procedure that allows evaluation of when it is "safe" to delegate a name, given that risk of conflict. The procedure begins with the assumption that the Interisle report to ICANN ("Name Collision...
