Subject: vs. Alternative Roots


A few posts mentioned  When someone "registers" a name, "" for example, they are actually registering the RFC 1035 domain name "".

Any domain name registrant should be permitted to allocate subdomains under their registered names without any restrictions.  A company should also be permitted to establish partnerships and distribute software that simplifies searching in whatever way they see fit ("" automatically goes to "").  RealNames and AOL Keywords have already been doing something similar.

ICANN name space policies (as opposed to conflict resolution, etc.) should apply ONLY to the highest qualifier of the domain name -- the top level domains.  At all lower level, allocation and management of domain names should be delegated to the registries.
