[alac] Renewal time for .aero, .coop, and .museum
There are renewal proposals at http://www.icann.org/announcements/announcement1-21dec05.htm I mostly looked at the .aero proposal since I actually have airinfo.aero. (Visit the web site.) The renewal proposal to me looks dreadful. They complain that the current registry/registrar model doesn't work, which considering the tiny number of registrations and the fact that their largest registrar recently merged into another that doesn't even sell .aero, is hard to deny. But they don't say what they want to do instead. I'm planning to file a comment encouraging ICANN to send the proposal back and demand enough detail to evaluate it. If anyone else in the ALAC or other at-large cares about this, let me know and we can make it a joint statement.
