      19 are not yet authorized.  Quite a few of them are already accepting pre-registrations. Bottomline is:  this problem is much smaller in comparison to the problem of wholesale hijacking of all generic names.

Sorry, but I think you did not get the point.  No one suggests that Afilias starts charging more from trademark holders to defend themselves from challenges.  From where did you get this?  Please clarify.  Sure, staff at WIPO have to be paid.  But, this problem is Afilias made.  They are responsible for setting it right.  Internet stakeholders like you and me, and others have done their best to help find a solution.  Afilias can come out with some reasonable fee for startup registrant so that they could fulfill their commitment to WIPO.  But, first they should show they are willing to consider legitimate demands of those who have lined up foer the startup period.
