Actually I became involved in this from a desire to assist others.  Pure and
simple.  I also feel there is some value in our operations from a financial
point of view and expect to be remunerated at various levels.

I do operate as a form of dictator over our domains.  Have to with regards
to abuse.  I often remove delegations in response to abuse cases.  And as
I'm footing the bill, I dictate what resources are available and when.
Nothing wrong with that.

Personally I believe the Name Space is under utilised and would like to see
more third level registeries.  I don't see any great value in everyone
having multiple individual diverse domains. And by opening up the other
levels for use, more names are available for everyone.  How this is done is
the value adding, also the services provided to maintain those hostnames and
domains.  So don't take my comments in the wrong way.  I support third level
registeries, either free or commercial.
