So, arguing strictly
from original intent, ORG is not designed with a restriction to NPOs in mind, and
ICANN needs to keep that in mind in letting any contracts to manage the ORG registry
separately from the others. Indeed, making such a change can be easily shown
to cause significant financial and other damages to the current ORG domain holders,
some of which have invested many years of efforts into their domains. I, for
one, do not find the idea of a "transition" to an alternate domain name to be acceptable
after being firstname.lastname@example.org for 11-1/2 years, and I'm sure I'm not the only
one in that boat.
My suggestion to ICANN is that they leave ORG alone, that is,
continue to treat it like COM and NET, and if they really want to help NPOs out,
set up a new gTLD for their activities.
