Is this kind of like the "being almost pregnant"
analogy.... Image Online Design has always been close to getting into the USG root.
It does require you to do some research, but I think you will find, that their "proof-of-concet"
dot web registry has shown the kind of Robustness (without all the baggage--"500
TLD concept) that ICANN is looking for...
>>>>New.net, too want
to become a part of the ICANN root. <<<<<
New.net does not want
to become a part of the ICANN root...Their hastily put together "position paper"
earlier this year pretty much clarified this point.. As with the case with Name-Space,
New.net has so many TLDs that they cannot possibly be granted that many...If in fact
New.net [changed their minds about the alternate root model] they have the precarious
position of trying to get just "one or two" TLDs in the USG root. I think ICANN
would be remiss in granting a TLD to any company that is both on the Alternate Root
and the USG root....and also tries to claim "ownership" of more than (1) TLD....Again,
New.net is and will be branded the 2001 Version of Name-space....Ouch!
