The addition of .jobs will serve only to increase the revenue of
registrars/registries and to increase the confusion of users.
The proposed functions of .jobs are adequately served by .com, .org, and the
corresponding second level domains within the ccTLDs.
I therefore oppose the introduction of .jobs.
If it is introduced, a "qualified applicant" should be any person authorised
by their employer to register a domain name, or any person that employs
others in their own right. Organisations should be at liberty to nominate
anyone they consider suitable to apply for a domain name - no professional
expertise is needed for what is an administrative task.
