 From General Counsel's Second Analysis of VeriSign
Global Registry Services' Request for Amendment to
Registry Agreement:

"The registry agreements provide for price caps for
domain-name registrations and other registry services
because the sole-source basis on which those services
necessarily must be provided creates the potential for
abusive charges. Where a registry operator is placed
in a position of market power (particularly customer
lock-in) by virtue of its appointment by ICANN, it has
been viewed to be appropriate to guard against abuses
of this market power."

Allowing currently capped prices to escalate in
perpetuity is not how one guards against monopolist
abuse of market power.
