Subject: Fairness: everybody in the world knows that .web=IOD


"Truth be told":
I don't understand what you wish to demonstrate in your posts.

It is obvious that IODesign started their .web registry in 1996
due to authorization by IANA, otherwise the registry
would not be started.

Maybe you want to demonstrate that IANA's promise can't be proved
in a legal way.
Even though you are right, this does not change very much
regarding *fairness*.
Everybody in the world knows that:
- IODesign's .web registry was the first one (1996)
  and was not born due to a caprice of IODesign! It was due to IANA's
  plans. These were not very clear, but this is not a fault of IOD!
- IOD's registry is already functioning and could be put into the
  A-root servers in seconds!
- ICANN was born *after* IOD's .web registry.
- Afilias was born 1 month ago (!), after Yokohama meeting about
  the creation of new TLDs.

You are smart, so please tell me who deserves to run the .web registry.
