    The improvements NeuStar wants may be a milder echo of the points made by VeriSign and some US Republican Senators. If the WLS is approved, how long would it take for NeuStar to bring it? -g

    As difficult as it might be to do so, imagine an environment where a system for adding new TLD's is in place and wholesale price de-regulation exists (the latter being what Verisign recently voiced as their specific concern with ICANN). The .biz TLD has already chosen its strategy being that of low wholesale pricing to influence a large volume of registrations. Basically, a strategy of competing head-to-head with .com for the same "business" target market without any real identifiable separation. This is the model they chose for their registry.

    If the projections submitted in October 2000 are now considered unrealistic for .biz, can you guess what their projections might look like today with price deregulation and new TLD's coming into the market place picking apart niche markets within .com? (note: serving a niche market is NOT the same as requiring restricted and/or sponsored TLD's for this purpose as the current applicants of .org each "say" in their application).

    New TLD's are not even on ICANN's agenda. For this reason alone, Neustar (and its registry model) is going to just lie down.

    In the interests of promoting competition, any company that already has a TLD should not be eligable for consideration for .org.
