My view would concur with this, these are really old battles starting back in the
netsol days and now the verisign has taken the same short sighted path.
It is time that neutral party is in charge

frankly i am mystified as to why icann awards registry contracts to
for-profit entities. registrars can be for-profit, but registries should
be non-profit or public-trust or whatever that specific nation's laws allow
for in terms of requirements for open accounting, uniform dealing, and
nonconflict with the public's interest.
