What should the role of a new gTLD Registry be?

We are preparing an article on the kind a role a new gTLD applicant should have for the community it has decided to represent. DotBrand new gTLDs are not concerned but generics are. It will be published in French first and adapted to English. There is a lot of innovation that we rarely find with new Registries. We will present what we believe is the real role of a Registry.
