Subject: Confusion vs. protectionism?


       What's the reason for limiting the "free" DNS to an "ICANN
       approved, exclusive DNS"?

       There is no confusion now with alternate roots, but there
       still is a certain consumer choice, which should be
       strenghtened by including alternate roots to the legacy root
       and NOT weakened by excluding them.

       Business interests, as "I want to keep my dot com important"
       are really bad arguments against that improvement of consumer

       If alternate roots meet a technical standart (to be defined),
       they should be introduced into the legacy root by ICANN.

       Otherwise we are talking about "protectionism".
