I personally am worried about the notion of 'promoting the .ie domain'.
This is quite a broad brush. I don't know what the registry has in mind,
but the types of surplus the registry is likely to generate would not put
it in a position to do a great deal of promoting on an international scale.

I could be mistaken, but I believe the idea of having a working group to
deal with this issue was discussed and informally agreed at the meeting on
11 December 1997.
