* A BALANCED APPROACH TO REGISTRY SERVICES? - Public comments are needed on a committee report which proposes to change the process for introducing new registry services (see <http://gnso.icann.org/comments-request/>). To share your views, send an email to the GSNO email list <registry-services@xxxxxxxxx> and the At-Large forum <forum@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> for posting.
I respectfully submit that due to nature of registries as critically necessary for operation of the DNS and hence the Internet, and the character of their operations s a "single point of failure" for that operation, that NO changes to the contracts or operations of registries be allowed by simple request of the registry. Simply put, any changes to such operations should be proposed, discussed, and brought to consensus or rejection identically whether they come from the groups represented by CBUC, IPC, ISPSP, NCUC, or even the At Large representation.
