"The second que will generate little or no revenues for Afilias. By postponing the deadline for the first que afilias can keep registrants bidding and competing for the few good names remaining. The longer the competition for these names continues the more money Afilias will make."

Afilias makes money from wholesale registration fees paid by the registrars.  And Afilias makes no money from applications that do not result in successful registrations.

The registrars make profit only from actual registrations.  Their receipts of 2 or 4 dollars per application only covers their costs of processing and submitting the applications and then notifying the applicants and then keeping track of all the applications whether the registrations are successful or not.
