ICANN punts on .xxx

ICANN removed consideration of a voluntary .xxx domain from the agenda of its meeeting last week.

ICANN removed consideration of a voluntary .xxx domain from the agenda of its meeeting last week, the Post reports.

ICANN's president, Paul Twomey, said the delay in a ".xxx" decision was largely procedural. The multigovernmental committee that weighs in on ICANN's international issues needed more time to review newly submitted documents, he said. Members also wanted to ensure that the proposed technical rules in ".xxx" could stick, he added.

Twomey said a decision on ".xxx" would likely come in the first few months of 2006.
