Subject: Pre-registrations were allowed in 1993 for .com

Message:
 

 
In 1993, when .com become active, pre-registrations by NSI
were allowed.

I don't understand why this can't be allowed for IOD's
.web registry! If you know IOD's .web history, you understand
that in 1996 IOD had to start to take registrations to test
the .web registry as a proof-of-concept.

I was impressed because IOD did NOT reserve several domains
for itself at webtld.com .
As far as I know, C.Ambler of IOD registered
nic.web , the.web , and iodesign.web .
Nobody in IOD registered speculative domains such as
business.web  or  marketing.web  .
I found this very serious and honest.
