Internationally it would be far too difficult to prove that an organisation is a registered non profit, as there are different regulations in almost every country.

And before anyone says "it should be reserved for American NPOs", well, .org is an INTERNATIONAL TLD, so anyone in the world has the right to use it, not just Americans.

And as for the alternatives, such as, well, I don't see many Americans using .us, so why should you force us to use our own suffixes?

As a reprasentative of Virtualis Systems, a Hosting company in the US with representatives from all around the world, we have been discussing this issue, and the general consensus is that this decision is ill informed, an extreeme waste of money, and biased significantly towards the USA.
