"Actually, we saw a fair amount of interest at the meeting in Canada last
week.  But wonderful though Canada is, it's only 10% of North America and I
agree that the interest in the other 90% just isn't there."

I cant understand why an inteligent person like you made such an argument.
Needles to say, you´re completely wrong.

I am sure we will have the time to discuss this during the meeting.

Best,

S.

Quite right, but it is at the same time directly useful for law enforcement
and others to deal with the wide range of abusive behavior, from spam and
phishing to online stalking, that affects individual users. 
We need to come to a position, but the range of reasonable positions remains
large.

More generally, it benefits a tiny group of domain speculators while
shifting the costs, which some registries have described as substantial, to
everyone else.

Actually, we saw a fair amount of interest at the meeting in Canada last
week.  But wonderful though Canada is, it's only 10% of North America and I
agree that the interest in the other 90% just isn't there.
