Subject: CLARIFICATION: Proof-of-Concept = Implementation Phase [defacto but not dejure] ...

Message:
 

Proof-of-Concept = Implementation Phase [defacto but not dejure], so don't let Fleming scare you about your domains.

[The point being that you can ignore the Proof-of-Concept status of the dot-info and dot-biz TLD's, and pretend that those TLD's are in the Implementation Phase, because any ICANN action revoking the Registry status of Registries will NOT cause you to lose your domains.]

Why does Fleming mention Proof-of-Concept Phase at all?

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 does Fleming 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].
