My vote would be a clear no.

After reading the charter my opinion matches the one of Jeff that this
should rather be done as a peering than via an opennic tld. I base this
partly upon the establishment of a seperate entity structure around the
tld. Another big part is the clear definition of who is allowed to
partake in decsions in regards of the domain. It is clearly stated that
only domain holders or the administrative entities behind the .tld may
vote. The opennic memberbase is excluded. A showstopper for me is the
part of "binding user agreements". It clashes a fair bit with openness
in my eyes.

Something which i will not hold against them is that they are not
finished with the infrastructure before calling this vote. Also the
creators of the TLD seem to be very recent members of the community.

Kind Regards,

Stephan Jauernick
