        Hi Keith:

All what you are saying is the ideal situation:  That registrars, ISPs, etc are people concerned with kids and simply reserve the rights to accept the registration of a domain and even revoque a domain when the content is dangerous for childrens.

But, where there are no laws for such issues, if a registrar revoques or reject to register a domain for someone, there can be legal suits against the registrar.

In my personal opinion, pornography as we know it in the rating of XXX should disapear from the internet.  But I cannot censor it. 

And I am agree with you:  "ICANN's responsibility to children is greater than its responsibility to existing erotic domain name holders."

But without policy, and without laws...who will take care?  I heard in a french movie this phrase "no one take care about the childrens rights because they don't vote"

And, by the way...my suggestion of zoning the pornographic websites to the a TLD .XXX (or similars) it is to make the live easy for parents.
If pornographic websites are not zoned, then parents will have to follow paying for softwares that make the job of filtering such kind of website. If doesn't exists a zone for Childrens, also parents have to follow paying for filtering software.

About governments to reach agreements:   I also know that maybe is utopic that governments reach to agreements, however, it needs to be  sayed that governments have to be concern about childrens issues, that ICANN encourage governments to work hard in this issue.  If ICANN doesn't worry about it...who will do it?  I have the hope that the governments, the internet community listen it and begin to be really concern.  I cannot allow myself to be pesimist in this issue.
