Milton, you point to gaming. Can you please tell me how a registry could abuse
the SRSU exception simply because they are an entity that provide domain name
Again, Neustar is not covered by the restriction as it is not our primary line
of business. Just looking out for others.
Also, the reason I support JN2 as opposed to RACK is because I do not believe
that one class of participants should be discriminated against. I would be
hypocritical to support the exclusion of 1 class in an exception. Also
remember, we "gave" in to accepting the notion of having an SRSU, so lets
nottalk here about "giving a little". You know Neustar has made a lot of
efforts to give.
Has nothing to do with being a lawyer for Neustar (since we are not exempted).
It is a matter of principal on a personal level.

If we open the whole thing up (as I favor) we don't need exceptions. We're not
opening it up completely. That's the point. ;-)
Jeff, it just seems to be that you are being too much of a lawyer and looking
out for the specific, narrow interest of your client (even if neustar has no
intention of applying for a SRSU, as I suspect). Try thinking about what we
need to gain agreement for moving forward. Everybody has to give a little here,
and telling companies that are already deeply involved in DNS that they can't
start a SRSU in the _initial_ round doesn't seem like giving up much of
anything to me. OTOH allowing them in raises all kinds of tricky questions
about gaming and categorization of actors which we'd best avoid in the short
term. NB: in the short term!!!!
