Here's a bit more on timing for consideration of new TLDs.[1][2]

Proposal deadline: 16 March 2004
 > 16-31 March 2004: Review applications for completeness
 > 1 April 2004: Public Comment opens on Part B
 > 30 April 2004: Public Comment closes on Part B
 > May –July 2004: Independent evaluation
 > 1 August 2004: Selection of applications for commercial and technical 
negotiations
 > August 2004 and forward: sTLDcommercial and technical contract 
negotiations

So, it looks like any comments from the TAG would have to be done by 30 
April 2004. I don't know when we'll be able to see the contents of the 
applications.
