The theme is the following:
Under which circumstances would people feel safe in allowing vertical
integration for a TLD that has a single registry and a single user (the
typical case being a "brand" TLD, for internal use only)?
Let me start.
* There should not be "sales" of SLDs, the names under the TLD are
distributed internally based on declared criteria.
* There is no "secondary market", i.e. a name cannot be "passed" to
another beneficiary. Actually, the name remains always under full control of
The point is that if a registry does fulfill these requirements, they will
be granted an exception, and will be allowed to operate without giving equal
access to all registrars.
There might be interesting questions, like:
* Will they be allowed to use the services of one registrar, selected
by them, or not?
