Subject: "Appropriate transition period" is an oxymoron.



This proposal with respect to .org is akin to retrospective legal insistance that corporations whose monikers do not literally describe their function (eg. "A Hundred Monkeys", a business naming consultation firm) change to something more descriptive of their function. How could an "appropriate transition period" reduce liability?

You fail to properly recognize that this proposal is NOT analogous to changing a street name, or a routine phone number change for infrastructure purposes (although those can be troublesome enough.)  This goes much further. It's an issue of *identity*, as outlined above.

ICANN could not have agreed to a more favorable deal for VeriSign. That you appear not to have challenged VeriSign's motivation in virtually eliminating competition in the .org space and forcing .org name holders to reregister and rebrand in another TLD for which they will collect a registry fee is a matter of grave concern.
