"ORG - This domain is intended as the miscellaneous
TLD for organizations that didn't fit anywhere else. Some non-government
organizations may fit here."
The RFC is not shy about stating the intended
function of gTLDs when there is one. For example, .net "is intended to hold only
the computers of network providers." And .gov "was originally intended
for any kind of government office or agency." But nothing is said about .org
being for nonprofits only.
ICANN's claim that .org's "originally intended function
[is] as a registry operated by and for non-profit organizations" is ludicrous.
