Subject: Lower Fees!

> You said the answer was lower fees.  Who or what body will set these fees?  The government?  ICANN?  My belief is that it is difficult to find a better alternative than a free-market system.

If all registers jointly owned a non-profit registry, then the registry would set the fees low enough to eliminate profit for the registry.  Thus there would be no greed for competing registers or registries to lock up all possible good TLD's.

And the registers could concentrate on their free-market for-profit businesses of registering domains for their customers.
