Subject: You know, there's nothing in DNS that makes special.


        If Verisign, I mean ICANN, wants to take away .ORG from the people who currently use it, then it would be possible to take away the top level from them. There's nothing magic about the servers. Running a root server is technically very simple and all it takes is changing a few lines in a configuration file to point to a different set of them.

I don't propose anything particularly drastic... any root servers should keep pointing at the "official" .COM, .NET, and .ORG servers... but making .ORG merely one of dozens of new top level domains should suffice to discourage this move. Particularly if a new domain for QUANGOs and the like comes into being as a result.
