Subject: .dir seems to have a useful place on the net


Registrars are not required (to my knowledge) to be able to register all TLD's.  That is what competition is about.  The .dir TLD seems to have a useful function in aiding internet users to find databases easily.

Although, I have to admit, I am a little disappointed in the quality of the Novell proposal.  I hope that the confidentiality issues really are the reason for such scetchy ideas.

As far as the NSI issue, you are 100% on that issue.  They do have too much control.  Let's spread it out a bit.  New companies and new ideas are what makes the internet such an interesting and amazing environment.  I'd like to see the "old school" registrars excluded and the "new kids" given a chance to see what they can do.
