As I've said, I'm open to discussion on this point.


Now, if there is a call to freeze pre-registrations at this time,
I'll listen to it. ICANN has but to ask. As the entity that is now,
for all intents and purposes (and in no small part legally) IANA,
they could tell us, "okay, you can stop taking registrations now,
you've proven that your registry works." We expected IANA
to do this in 1997, actually.

If, additionally, the issue of clearing the database prior to entry
into the roots is on the table, ICANN need only bring it up.
While we are opposed to it, we don't have closed minds. If
ICANN can show a good reason for it, and also show how it
won't harm our customers (or get us or them into legal
trouble for canceling existing contracts), I'd love to hear about

Failing ICANN making a statement on this, all we're doing is
discussing theory. Which, as I said, I'm willing to do as well.
