By "capacity" I refer to the applicant's capitalization and skills, 
its capacity to meet the current contractual obligation, still not 
determined, but somewhere between close-of-application window and 

Fairly banal stuff. The JAS WG is, in principle, attempting to lower 
the barriers to entry for applicants outside of the early adopter and 
highly capitalized incumbents and "participants that engage in ICANN's 
processes to a greater extent than Internet users generally".

The question is pretty simple -- have costs been imposed in the 2010 
round that were not present in the 2005 or 2001 rounds, and how can 
they be managed to least adversely affect applications that meet the 
geographic, economic, and related diversity goals for new registry 

Either v6 adoption is, or isn't, a manageable cost, and 123 offers a 
temporal tool, re-usable v4 blocks, that may move the cost of v6 
adoption off of the applicant-operator's debit finance and onto its 
revenue finance books.

I'm going to stop here.
