||New.net vs. Alternative Roots
A few posts mentioned New.net. When someone "registers" a New.net name, "mydomain.shop"
for example, they are actually registering the RFC 1035 domain name "mydomain.shop.new.net".|
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 ("mydomain.shop" automatically goes to "mydomain.shop.new.net"). 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.
