The selected string appears to be a safe one from the perspective of issues stipulated in the “IDN Variant TLDs – Cyrillic Script issues” report prepared by the team examining the Cyrillic script in the framework of the ICANN IDN Variant TLDs Issues project (http: ⁄⁄www.icann.org⁄en⁄topics⁄new-gtlds⁄Cyrillic-vip-issus-report-06oct11-en.pdf).
The problem of confusion between Cyrillic symbols “E” and “Ё” considered in section 3.1 of the above mentioned report is not a variant, as “Ё” is not a valid substitution for “Е” and the word “ДЁТИ” with its lexical meaning does not exist both in the Russian Language and any other relative Cyrillic-based languages. The practice of using “Е” and “Ё” as independent symbols in domain .РФ exposed the absence of any problems in this case, either.
The Applicant is unaware of issues associated with translation of the proposed set of symbols to other languages and any potential confusion with regard to the graphic image and meaning.
The above is confirmed by a reputable and internationally recognized national linguistic authority, representative of the Chair of New Media and Communication Theory of the Moscow State University, professor of philology, Ivan Zasursky (the copy of the official letter is attached to Evaluation Question #44 as Q44_MSULanguageExperts).
At present the Applicant is aware of the .KIDS gTLD initiative, with the respective application being prepared for submission during the first round of the ICANN New gTLD Program. Both applicants have entered into negotiations between them and believe they share the same values underpinning their strive for easy-to-use and safer Internet for children. The applicants have agreed on mutual support of each otherʹs initiatives, have no competing issues and attest that each applicantʹs initiative is unique and will complement the other one, and vice versa, for the benefit of the Internet community. In witness whereof, the applicantsʹ official letters are enclosed to the answer to Evaluation Question #49a - Q49a_dotKidsLetter
All latest releases of browsers support Internationalized Domain Names. Specifically, to date Internet users have successfully used second level Cyrillic domain names in ccTLD .РФ for more than a year. So, the Applicant believes implementation of the new IDN gTLD .ДЕТИ will not pose any operational problems.
