I support this; and this is in line with ADNA's current policy position on
its priorities.

I tend to disagree. This seems to be more a technology-driven solution than
one looking at market-driven requirements.
For example, there would be a good case for the Australian Industrial
Policy Office (AIPO)- or a subcontracted entity acting on their behalf - to
be the DNA for a new 2LD, as they obviously have the greatest
expertise to check their own databases to check if a candidate name already
has some status in the Australian trademark registration process. But I
suspect that the AIPO would not be interested in any wider DNA
One can postulate other specialist, valuable 2LDs suitable for specialised
And why should a 'generalist DNA' need to cover all the specialised 2LDs?
