<html><body><span style="font-family:Verdana; color:#000000; 
font-size:10pt;"><div>Acronym (ARDS) has several deficits with that name. 
</div><div><br></div><div>1. Needs to have representation for (Domain) in name. 
Otherwise, the name of</div><div>"Aggregated Registration Directory Service" 
could be for ANY directory of that nature. Nothing identifying</div><div>the 
name of the service with <b>Domain Name information</b>. 
</div><div><br></div><div>2. Does not really need the word/symbol for 
"Aggregated." That is given. <b>The term is redundant.</b> Seems that was used 
more just to make the Acronym work or sound half decent. 
<br></div><div><br></div><div>3. <b>Does not needs the (S) Acronym for Service. 
</b>That is redundant also. Seems that was added to make the acronym work as 
well. No purpose for that letter (s) in this acronym. Basically a neutral 
letter that could be used or left off with no difference in meaning/value. 
<br></div><div><br></div><div>3. Much better term would be either of the 
following:</div><div><br></div><div><b>DNCH</b> (Domain Name Clearinghouse). 
Clearinghouse of Domain Name related Information. 
</div><div><br></div><div>(or)</div><div><br></div><div>DRDS (dreds for 
pronounciation purposes) Domain Registration Directory Services 
</div><div><br></div><div>Thank you for allowing me to 
input,</div><div><br></div><div>Duane Higgins, ceo</div><div><a
