Will there be someone competing with MelbourneIT by the time the deadline
for existing domain name renewals rolls around?

If this is not the case, I suggest that the new agency will be getting the
short end of the stick, as MelbourneIT will have already gobbled up the
X,000 existing domain names, leaving the new agency with only new
registrations to make money from. Giving any new agencies the chance at a
share of the existing client base seems fair.

Perhaps MelbourneIT's requirement that all existing domain names be
registered by 1 February 1997 was simply a gambit to attempt to grab a
massive share of the market before there was any competition.

Perhaps existing domains should remain in limbo until there is some
established competition?
