Subject: New TLDs a much better option.


        The "original" TLDs are really set at this point.  Changing them will only make people mad.
      Because the com/net/org TLDs are so full, and yes, disorganized, it would seem that trying to sort them out would be a waste of everyone's time and energy.
Adding new TLDs is not difficult, technically, only politically.  ICANN and the US (world's?) government needs to be more receptive to creating TLDs.
*.org is lost as an organized TLD, make a new one, such as *.nop: non-profit.  Since it is new, only non-profit organizations can apply to have space there.  The definition of a non-profit group is well set already (in the US), so defining who can join is easily done.
At the very least, owners of domains in the .org TLD should be allowed to continue renewing their ownership.
Driving away users will only result in more outcry for a change in the whole system, which will drive profits down for the status quo.  Remember that your domain "owners" are also your profit sources.

Thank you for your time.
