Simon raises some good issues here.

But it seems to me there is an easy way to short-circuit these hard
questions, if we restricted the scope and said that these are selection
criteria ONLY for

If we have separate selection criteria documents for each 2LD, then we 
could cater for the fact that domains have different types of users,
different number of 3LDs, different policies to enforce and different
DNA/fee models.  An obvious example is vs

For those 2LDs which are similar ( and perhaps), then down
the track the criteria could be cloned and tailored (if necessary).

That way, we could give priority to getting selection criteria to
fixed, and leave discussion of the different requirements of other 2LDs
until later.  (Hmm, why do I have this strange sense of deva ju? :-)
