Subject: The question is "original intent".


        I don't think there's any question that when RFC 920 was written, nobody envisioned an Internet where an organization... regardless of its size... might have no more than one or two publically visible hosts. There are no doubt quite a few sizable orginizations that are represented only by a handful of DNS records and a couple of lines in a virtual hosting server.

But the question at hand isn't "how big an organization needs to be" but rather "what kind of organization qualifies for a .org domain", and the original intent was clearly "Any organization that doesn't fit under any other top level domain".
