..."the new .ORG Registry should be a neutral entity. ... ICANN should seek
a .ORG Registry that will manage .ORG in a completely fair, unbiased and balanced
manner, taking into account the interests and concerns of the entire .ORG community,
both large and small non-commercial organizations and all segments of the registrar
community. Favoritism, cronyism and parochialism should be avoided at all costs."
... ".ORG should be responsive to and representative of the
non-commercial community for which it stands. ICANN should ensure that a broad
cross section of the non-commercial community itself will play an important advisory
role in the ongoing operation of the new .ORG Registry. Because of the growing
importance of domain names and websites to non-profits, it is imperative that the
community have a powerful say in future policies affecting all aspects of the .ORG
top level domain, including decisions concerning the technological functionality
of the sites themselves."
. ICANN should ensure that the
new .ORG Registry is committed to taking all necessary steps to preserve and enhance
the non-commercial identity of the .ORG domain. As the world of top-level Internet
domains becomes ever more segmented and competitive, it’s essential that we preserve
the unique “branded” identity of .ORG. Any blurring of the lines in this
regard will cause long-term damage to .ORG’s identity and impact, and to the broad
non-commercial community which it symbolizes."
No argument here; just dont hinder
the rights of those who currently (and I stress, CURRENTLY) own and use .org for
purposes other than strictly "non-profit organization"
