Subject: The actual text of RFC 1591


        The actual text of RFC 1591 on the .ORG TLD is:

"ORG - This domain is intended as the miscellaneous TLD for
organizations that didn't fit anywhere else.  Some non-
government organizations may fit here."

Clearly there is no exclusivity for non-profits in this statement.
Your interpretation of the RFC intent is misleading. The fact that
the term 'miscellaneous' is used frankly makes the point that
there was no clear mandate for the .ORG TLD.
