        Landrush is done, it is all ready, they are stalling for another reason altogether.

Think about it, for Afilias to make what amounts to their first published commitment (i.e. a definite ultimatum) I'm absolutely sure they have it in hand already.

Why they will release the information on Monday could be for any number of reasons:
1. Data massaging (profiling, retribution, demographics, registrar-pleasing etc. etc.).
2. Timing for marketing purposes (Mr. LaPlante has his release about the launch all polished and ready).
3. As "Antipodes" observently noticed, they are calling it "Start-up" and no more mentioning "Landrush" anywhere!! All the more reason to believe they want a single event mentioned in the media with all the positive spin it will entail..

Monday it is (notice though that true to form in absence of a set time, Monday spans from Sunday all the way to Tuesday morning, classic Afilias)
