The difference is the end-user 'cost' to change services. It's rather
small to switch to a new credit card. It's enormous -- and possibly deadly
to the organization -- to switch to a new domain name.
The distinction between "initial choice" and "renewal choice" is
fundamental. Having a great deal of the former is of course a good thing.
Having essentially none at the latter event is paramount.
