Sorry, this slipped by me, since there was no response to this thread between 2 July and yesterday, and yesterday when the thread was reactivated I was unavailable.  But thanks to you and Salanieta for not letting the ball drop and putting in your own personal submissions on time.

As for extending the deadline by a week and putting in an IGC submission, even if the deadline was extended, unless we quickly hear from some more people on the list it will still be difficult to formulate a statement on this, since we would only have a couple of days to do so before needing to do a consensus call.

Also I don't think we can presume to have consensus on everything in your and Salanieta's statements.  (Just one example, that shorter gtlds should be cheaper than longer ones... this is actually the reverse of the position in the telephony world, where shorter numbers are more expensive than longer ones.)

Does anyone who has expertise in this area feel that they can go through Imran's and Salanieta's statements and pull out the points on which we think there is a broad civil society consensus, which could quickly form the basis of an IGC statement if the deadline is extended?  If not I can try but this is not my core area.
