There are actually some conditions in 2.6.2, 2.7.1, 2.7.3 which would apply
to DNAs of single DNA domains.

I think ADNA should keep a master copy of contact details of domain holders
as a backup as well as in case a DNA disappears for whatever reason and the
data is lost.

I don't understand this one - if anyone registers a 3LD and then goes into
business selling subdomains in it that's there business. There would be
nothing to stop non-DNAs doing it so why couldn't DNAs do it if they want
(not that I can see them wanting to). I don't see why ADNA has to have an
interest in what happens at the 4LD level.

Maybe we should say "fines up to $10,000" or something - otherwise DNAs are
signing onto a blank cheque.

Looks good otherwise.
