I have to admit this is a scary start to this DT...

Anyway, working out a definition for VI seems like a reasonable approach. It 
also seems reasonable to try and taylor this definition to the real-world ICANN 
situation we are tasked with looking at.

So just to make sure I got this right, the definition that is being proposed at 
this stage is the following?

Vertical integration is defined as a business structure in which there is no 
separation between the registry operator and the registrar; they are owned and 
operated by the same company and the domain name supplier is not required to 
provide access to independent firms to sell names under its TLD.
