Did We Miss ICANN's Reply?

On July 29, the Non-Commercial Users Constituency (NCUC) and Public Interest Registry (PIR) sent out a joint letter to ICANN asking it to consider the interests of the end-users as core to its policies in Internationalized Domain Names (IDN) implementation. The letter was received on August 6. The text of the letter is on ICANN's website.

As of today's date, August 21, 2008, we have yet to receive even an acknowledgement of receipt of our letter, let alone a reply. I am concerned about the lack of communication and responsiveness especially on an issue that is so central to the mission of ICANN. After all, at the end of the day do they not serve the interests of the end-users.
