Subject: Huh?


      If you did a live inquiry you would have found no conflict with either .biz or .name.  The other conflict is with and is being worked on as far as I know.  You should know that there are servers that have the identical information in their records, so what you thought were conflicts with .BIZ are not.  I believe that Andrew McGlaughlin made a similar error when he commented in Melbourne when he stated that there were several conflicts.  There was some erroneous information in some roots for a time.  That has been corrected for quite a while now.  The only potential conflict with .BIZ is ICANN's choice.

TLD managers are working to resolve any existing conflicts.  There have been some disturbing recent developments such as the conflicts and the ICANN selections.  If they are not willing to work them out, it will present a difficult problem.  However, had ICANN not set the precedent, we would have been well on our way to a collision-free name space.  Oh well...
