Subject: .ORG never meant for non-profits -- you have no right to change it now


                As other posters have pointed out, the .org TLD was NEVER INTENDED to be used solely by non-profit organizations.  Quoting from RFC 1591:

ORG -    This domain is intended as the miscellaneous TLD for
         organizations that didn't fit anywhere else.  Some non-
         government organizations may fit here.

For you to go back and completely change the purpose of this TLD is absolutely ludicrous, especially when you could simply create a NEW TLD and reserve that solely for non-profit use.

Many of us have registered and paid for .org TLD -- there is no justifiable reason to take those away from us now. 

For reference, I've provided a link to the full RFC that describes what each of the TLDs are to be used for.
