    Fostering competition?

    By its very nature, as a regulator of a cartel, run by the members of the cartel, ICANN only pays lipservice to fostering competition. Cartels never dissolve themselves.
    It is striking that ICANN is now fighting with ccTLDs over zone transfer (getting the complete data), and argues the need for it by insisting on two nameservers for each domain. They want to check that in the ccTLD zones. Well, in the com/net/org zones there are tens of thousands of domains with NO nameserver. Why is ICANN not enforcing the same rule there, where they could so much more easily? Because it does not fit into the plan: Getting control over everything by the cartel. The cartel does not want to do things in the benefit of "the community". It want just the power to have things as it likes it.

    yes, I have been following this a little bit. It certainly seems this issue is clearly related to "stability". The ccTLD's argue that not updating the information compromises stability today and for ICANN that not allowing zone access compromises stability today and tomorrow. In short, I see the relationship to "stability" with this issue.

    Specific to ICANN, is there a like-kind relationship to "stability" where the wholesale price of .com is concerned (or its need to regulate price for any TLD registry)?

    C'mon Marc, you know that's one step down the tree. Other than that I agree with you. -g
