A memoria dei posteri, ho qualche dubbio tra l'altro circa il Fair
Treatment menzionato qui sotto al punto (c), hanno i privati cittadini lo
stesso equo trattamento nel sottomettere le registrazioni se il Presidente
non pone il veto all'ultima decisione del CE ?

Trovate sotto anche la procedura (e) e (f) per il Transfers and Disputes
over Delegations e Revocation of TLD Delegation.

As part of its responsibility for the overall coordination and management
of the DNS, the IANA receives and processes all requests for new TLDs and
for changes to existing TLDs. The following policies are applicable to
management of TLDs. In general, the principles described here apply
recursively to all delegations of the Internet DNS name space.


(b) TLD Manager Responsibility. TLD managers are trustees for the delegated
domain, and have a duty to serve the community. The designated manager is
the trustee of the TLD for both the nation, in the case of ccTLDs, and the
global Internet community. Concerns about "rights" and "ownership" of
domains are inappropriate. It is appropriate, however, to be concerned
about "responsibilities" and "service" to the community.

(c) Fair Treatment. The designated manager must be equitable and fair to
all groups in the domain that request domain names. Specifically, the same
rules must be applied to all requests and they must be processed in a
non-discriminatory fashion. The policies and procedures for the use of each
TLD must be available for public inspection. Generally these are posted on
web pages or made available for file transfer. While variations in policies
and procedures from country to country are expected due to local customs
and cultural values, they must be documented and available to interested
parties. Requests from for-profit and non-profit companies and
organizations are to be treated on an equal basis. No bias shall be shown
regarding requests that may come from customers of some other business
related to the TLD manager. For example, no preferential service for
customers of a particular data network provider. There can be no
stipulation that a particular application, protocol, or product be used.

(d) Operational Capability. The TLD manager must do a satisfactory job of
operating the DNS service for the domain. Duties such as the assignment of
domain names, delegation of subdomains and operation of nameservers must be
done with technical competence. This includes keeping the IANA or other
higher-level domain manager advised of the status of the domain, responding
to requests in a timely manner, and operating the database with accuracy,
robustness, and resilience. Because of its responsibilities for the DNS,
the IANA must be granted access to all TLD zones on a continuing basis.
There must be a primary and a secondary nameserver that have IP
connectivity to the Internet and can be easily checked via access to zones
for operational status and database accuracy by the IANA.

(e) Transfers and Disputes over Delegations. For transfer of TLD management
from one organization to another, the higher-level domain manager (the IANA
in the case of TLDs), must receive communications from both the old
organization and the new organization that assure the IANA that the
transfer is mutually agreed, and that the proposed new manager understands
its responsibilities. It is also very helpful for the IANA to receive
communications from other parties that may be concerned or affected by the
transfer. In the event of a conflict over designation of a TLD manager, the
IANA tries to have conflicting parties reach agreement among themselves and
generally takes no action unless all contending parties agree. On a few
occasions, the parties involved in proposed delegations or transfers have
not been able to reach an agreement and the IANA has been required to
resolve the matter. This is usually a long drawn out process, leaving at
least one party unhappy, so it is far better when the parties can reach an
agreement among themselves. It is appropriate for interested parties to
have a voice in the selection of the designated manager.

(f) Revocation of TLD Delegation. In cases where there is misconduct, or
violation of the policies set forth in this document and RFC 1591, or
persistent, recurring problems with the proper operation of a domain, the
IANA reserves the right to revoke and to redelegate a Top Level Domain to
another manager.
