Please see the answer from Versign. So, as before, these extensions
should be merely operable under dot CN. But it's still surprising. I
asked the CNNIC directly about this issue today. They said they never
licensed Versign to offer this service and they had not idea where
Versign got the products from.

Dear Hong,

These naming extensions are actually CNNIC naming products.

Digital Brand Management Services (DBMS) is making these available to
it's brand security customers as it does with many domain and keyword
naming products.  DBMS is a business unit of VeriSign that offers a
proven portfolio of digital brand security services, including domain
name management, global brand expansion services and digital brand
monitoring solutions.

These extensions themselves are not VeriSign offerings.

Apparently, that's what they do.

Tomorrow we start the Board retreat, I'm sure we will know more.
