  Your proposed change in the pricing structures on domain renewals is going to 
create unrealistic demands upon small businesses..  supposed I have a great 
name that alot of people want.  What is to stop a registrar from charging me 
$500,000 for renewal knowing I can not afford it, then they end up having my 
premium, in demand name & resell it to another buyer for far less than the 
renewal fee..  this is bad business & registrars that are already crooked & 
dishonest will further abuse their registrar status.  What's to stop a 
registrar from charging me an excessive renewal fee that exceeds my earnings.. 
This is just a blatent attempt by ruthless registrars to take over good names 
for themselves so they can resell them at a hefty profit.  I have several .info 
& .org domains..  some of which I make absolutely no money at all on, but I 
like the names, & wish to keep them, but not if I have to pay rediculously high 
rates..  some of which are trademarked & if ever acquired by anyone else, a 
swift lawsuit would be taken against the owner & registrar responsible for 
creating availabilty.  Your proposed plans are bad, unneccesary & registrars 
already have the upperhand as it is.. look at moniker.com for example..  they 
bulk register 1000s of domains for themselves everyday & they sit on them until 
they find a buyer to resell at an excessively high markup. Good domain names 
are hard enough to come by as it is & your proposed plans would create a very 
difficult situation for many small business, & create problems with name
