Scatter the Registry to real providers do not centralize them again
I find it a bad idea to give verisign again the dotnet authority. If you centralize the whole domain administration to one point, then you give verisign again a lot of power and influence.
An administration through verisign is a bad decision for the community of the InterNet user. Better would be to scatter the power of toplevels to a real comunity out in the network. But I am worry, that your descision is only valid for US applicants and the states will not realy accept the rest of the world as real service providers or a real part of the internet community. The people in the states still think that US is the only market place in the world and does not see, that asia have alreay more power than the whole us.
So, what will happen is the states will not give away any administration out of they're country. They worry that other people could make it better. Under this aspect it is absolutly clear that the Telcordia report is a faked report where the reality should be hidden to the eyes of desciding people.
Please descide for the community and not for the NSA or a political advantage.
