I would suggest you do nothing differently (see below) even if they were 
poor networks, which the new gTLD process endeavours to keep from 
happening, i.e., each submitted some proofs they would be professionally

NDR is synchronous unless you using forks or threads for each query

what with people fetching/referencing dozens of things all too often 
using different (domain) names.
