Innovation in the .FEEDBACK new gTLD?

The ".feedback" new gTLD project is criticized by the President of an ICANN work group. His words about the pricing structure of ".feedback": it appears to "treat trademark owners as cash cows to be milked as aggressively and as often as possible".

According to Jean Guillon:
I like the idea to bring innovation with new gTLDs but I am not sure about this business model: I don't think new gTLDs can reach adoption if they harm users. This looks like it could be the case with ".feedback" domain names.

Participate in the .FEEDBACK new gTLD Sunrise Period with Nameshield.

Extract from the article:
"The ‘.feedback’ TLD, which aims to “solidify a positive and recognisable reputation as the best TLD for finding product information, whether it is positive or negative”, is currently in sunrise. However, the president of ICANN’s IP Constituency (IPC) has told World Trademark Review that the pricing structure appears to “treat trademark owners as cash cows to be milked as aggressively and as often as possible".
