At one time, I would have supported the idea
of "enforcing" the domain policies - but that time is over. The .org domain has come
to mean more than "a registered non-profit". It is typically used by personal sites
not out to make money, or sites supporting open/free discussion or exchange of ideas
and code. These sites are not typically registered non-profits. To make matters worse
- what domain would these sites then go under, anyhow? The .com domain isn't right,
and .net is out - so what then? Plus, it would cause a lot of confusion as to what
is a commercial site vs. a non-commercial site.
I guess this is what .org has come
to mean; "non-commercial" instead of "non-profit". Allow for groups of both to use
it. There is no need to change it: Doing so would only cause problems.
