    Names in the domain name system represent more than web sites.

    A DNS name can cover a multitude of services. The same DNS name may cover a web site, an IRC chat, e-mail lists, video streaming, and even telnet and ftp services.

    The people who try to use domain name TLDs as an indication of some sort of category of use are insufficiently formed about the nature of Internet technology.

    Who speaks for .org registrants?

    Everyone's entitled to their opinion on what entity should succeed Verisign as the .org operator, but the sad thing about the current ICANN process is that the NCDNHC evaluation team's opinion on Criteria 4, 5, and 6 was deemed authoritative for purposes of the Staff recommendation.

    When a bidder correctly points out that the non-commercial evaluators missed the boat on what is really important to charitable institutions, we ought to listen to that. After all, the non-commercial evaluation team was hardly reflective of the community that will be served by the .org TLD. Here's a list of the evaluators and the primary e-mail address they use for participation in the NCDNHC:

    • Mr. Thierry Amoussougbo, Benin (amsiat@bow.intnet.bj)
    • Mr. Harold Feld, USA (hfeld@mediaaccess.org)
    • Mr. Eric Iriarte, Peru (faia@amauta.rcp.net.pe)
    • Mr. Milton Mueller, USA (Mueller@syr.edu)
    • Ms. Youn Jun Park, Republic of Korea (yjpark@myepark.com)
    • Mr. Ermanno Pietrosemli, Venezuela (ermanno@ula.ve)
    • Mr. Marc Schneider, Germany (marc@fuchsia.bijt.net)
    • Mr. Dany Vandromme, France (vandrome@renater.fr)
    That's right. Exactly one person views .org as his primary Internet identity. Given the very loose relationship between the evaluation team and the .org TLD, I'm not sure why this report should receive any more weight than one of the many public comments submitted to the ICANN forum.
