Was reading the registries response to ICANN's request for information and I'm 
struck by the similar wording they have provided regarding:
  (iv) to the extent a
variable pricing model for active Registered Names has been implemented in any 
new or existing gTLD.
  So this means that if a new tld registry or exisiting one starts using 
variable pricing then biz, info, org can?
  You've got to be kidding. This does not protect the registrants.
  There should be no variable pricing allowed under any circumstances period.  
End of story. If registries want to be able to raise prices across the board - 
this should be specified or capped. Ideally, prices should be lowered.
  Then we have the words "an active registration" - how is that defined?
  A domain with nameservers? A domain being used a certain way? 
  No variable tier pricing under any cirumstances period.

Do you Yahoo!?
 Get on board. You're invited to try the new Yahoo! Mail.
