So let me get this right.  My mother buys a name like sewing.org five years
ago.  She builds a little business selling sewing supplies that makes $5,000
per year.  Then one year she gets a renewal invoice from the Registry for
$4,000 because they have deemed it a valuable name.  It is about that

This "pricing" ship has already sailed.  If you wanted pricing structures
like this you needed to do them out of the gate.  However, they are not good
for the internet anyway.  This fits right in with the principles of net
neutrality.  You can't let big companies control net access and you can't
let the Registry control variable domain name pricing for very practical
reasons like the sewing.org example and for others like this:

What if the CEO of a registry is all against gun control.  Could he not
decide to send  guncontrol.org  a bigger bill than nra.org  and just claim
it was a more valuable name.

Think it could not happen?  Just look around you at the things people do
every day that you would not expect them to do.  

Icann you are sticking your foot in it again?For your own sake stay away
from this one.  It is 10,000 lawsuits in the making?.
