Didn't know you were such a fan of SiteFinder.

Of course, ICANN doesn't have the power to 'outlaw' anything wrt the  
ccTLDs, only request countries abide by documented polices and  
practices.  I gather you considered the IAB meddling when they posted http://www.iab.org/documents/docs/2003-09-20-dns-wildcards.html 

More pragmatically, do you have substantive criticism of http://www.icann.org/en/committees/security/sac015.htm?
