Subject: Chinese Domain Name Consortium (CDNC) Declaration

        Chinese Domain Name Consortium (CDNC) Declaration 

Based on current status of Internationalized Domain Name, CDNC makes 
following declaration:

1. Currently, IETF IDN WG begins Last Call for the WG core documents

But, the architecture of IDN defined in above four documents does not
solve the traditional and simplified Chinese character variant problem.
That will cause serious delegation problem in the application of 
Chinese Domain Name. This technical flaw can't be compensated by 
registration policy; it'll prevent Chinese Domain Name from being used
widely. All the future Internet applications based on Chinese Domain 
Name hierarchy will fail and ultimately Chinese Domain Name technology
will result in failure.

2. Under the commercial and social pressure, IETF IDN WG issues Last 
Call hastily without presenting a proper Chinese Domain Name technical
solution. It will be detrimental to the ethnic-Chinese Internet community.

3. IETF IDN WG does not solve Chinese Domain Name technical problem, 
but it is IETF IDN WG's responsibility to sincerely consider the 
consequences from adopting these drafts. Under the current condition, 
if IETF approves these IDN drafts, registrars will open Chinese Domain 
Name registration without considering the requirement of Chinese Domain 
Name and Chinese Domain Name will fall into confusion. This will damage 
Chinese Internet community seriously. 

4. IDN would be flawed by not adopting CDN requirements.
