According to the NEW IANA's web site, "all TLD administrators"[1] are required to
follow RFC 1591. The link to RFC 1591 points to a document that describes the
"Internet DNS Names Review Board (IDNB)"[2]. Can anyone answer the following
questions ?

1. Who is on the IDNB ?
2. Where can the policies and proceedings of the IDNB be found ?
3. What has been the history of the IDNB's rulings ?

"It is important that all TLD administrators follow the guidelines of RFC 1591.
TLD administrators should treat this stewardship responsibility as a service to
the global Internet community."

"The Internet DNS Names Review Board (IDNB), a committee established by
the IANA, will act as a review panel for cases in which the parties can not reach
agreement among themselves. The IDNB's decisions will be binding."
