Subject: Why mention Proof-of-Concept Phase at all?

Message:
 

 
"Why would people lose their names ?  Think of the ICANN Proof-of-Concept phase as a market trial.  They are helping to attract the customers to the industry.  Why would a registry operating the Full Deployment phase want to start over ?"

Fleming's posts earlier mentioning ICANN's Proof-of-Concept phase implied that ICANN might REVOKE the registries' mainroot Registry status [thus converting them into alt root registries] and that ICANN might select a different company to be Registry.

That post also implied that the new TLD domain-holders risk losing their domains.   Not so.

Why mention ICANN's Proof-of-Concept Phase at all?  Only to scare folks away from ICANN's new TLD's [and into Fleming's schemes].
