It is very important that the .PRO domain is expanded to include other
professional groups, however the changes proposed by RegistryPro have a
potential to eliminate the core benefits provided by the .PRO domain.  The
ICANN Board of Directors should consider how the main requirement
(professional registration) could be circumvented if this domain is opened
to all nations.
Not all nations have the strict registration guidelines that are in place in
the United States.  Opening second level .pro domains to all nations may
enable applicants with questionable or insufficient credentials in one
nation to gain approval by submitting eligibility from less judicious
Certified domains are a strong step in combating the spam pandemic (I prefer
'spamdemic').  Imagine being able to set your spam protection to accept all
messages with a .PRO extension (or other certified extension), knowing that
spammers cannot use this domain because the accountability required provides
an avenue for prosecution.  

The strict requirements of the .PRO domain should not be sacrificed at the
expense of lower registration fees.  These registration rates are negligible
to serious business professionals, and are well worth the benefits provided
by the .PRO domain.
