|The proposal to impose some sort of mandatory restrictions on .org is long dead,
and never got very much support in the first place. The current proposal (linked
below) calls for .org to be administered by a separate entity from .com and .net,
and marketed in a way that encourages its use by the noncommercial community and
encourages it to be differentiated from .com and other TLDs, but emphatically does
not impose any kind of mandatory restriction on either current or future registrations.
Also, the noncommercial user base is explicitly stated to be wider than merely government-accredited
nonprofit organizations. Thus, it does not appear that you have anything to
worry about. Careful scrutiny of all plans and changes in .org is always a
good idea, but Chicken-Little-style panic-mongering is an overreaction.
