To ICANN,
I think any registry that wishes to raise prices or even have that option in
a contract should be forced to re-bid the contract. There is nothing
perpetual about raising prices in the next version if they said they could
do it for one price in the past, let them continue with the same price. With
a TLD monopoly they feel no pressure to lower prices. Had this been re-bid,
I guarantee they would have bid a lower price. If they feel labor or other
factors require them to raise prices then open the contract for re-bid.
Perpetual should mean just that, status quo. No more perpetual contracts
should be signed and no current ones extended that have price increases
allowed for in them.
