What difference does all this make?  ICANN does not require that applicants be NPO's, and it is not an enforcement agency for the US, Switzerland or anywhere else.  CORE is an NPO because it does not make a profit.  CORE does not charge anybody any money, except for its own members.  Have you ever bought a domain name from CORE?  No, because you cannot.  You have to buy domains from one of its members, which are all for-profit corporations who pay taxes.  And what CORE charges its members is nominal, since all it needs is to pay expenses, because that's how NPOs work.

That being said, I would like to see some feedback here on CORE's proposal to register .NOM domains.  This thread should relate only to that, and not to Afilias, which has its own thread.  Unfortunately, ICANN has not yet posted the details of CORE's proposal, but at least people can comment on the name, itself, and on CORE's ability to manage it.

I will start a new thread with parts of CORE's proposal.
