ICANN not streamlining
ICANN is making assumptions that the majority of applicants will need DNS testing. Close to 1,400 registrants are expected to need testing. In a q&a with ICANN pre-delegation testing provider RFP, “Question 7: Can ICANN provide a definitive statement of the anticipated minimum number of pre-delegation tests?The total number of applied-for strings that will be approved is unknown at this point. Therefore, we cannot assert the minimum number of registries to be tested but only the maximum: 1,400. We expect that the actual numbers of registries tested should be close to the maximum.” Ironically ICANN has been asked to stream line the process and this testing process will put them behind what registrants want.
