               Afilias may compete against IOD, as soon as further registrars are beeing introduced to .web.
But IOD should be the first registrar of .web.
We will see, if you are right or not, but till now they were able to run the existing .web registry.

If later-on Afilias joins registering .web names and becomes more attractive than IOD, IOD may loose its customers. That's it.

But we would not risk to help creating another hidden monopoly.
And some people think this might happen, if Affilias starts the process. Anyway, I am sure everybody agrees with me that the risk of Affilias creating a hidden monopoly is considerably higher than that of IODs. The bigger a company is, the higher that risk is.

Regards,
Friedrich
