Not at all. There is only one domain name under consideration in
that hypothetical. What's being debated is whether granting a
domain name to the most cashed-up player is a fairer system than
granting it under some other criteria, such as:

 - the one who has a "stronger" right to the name, or
 - the one who asked for the name first, or
 - the one who can make better use of the name.

If, say, Micro$oft were one of the players in this game, they can win
anytime they choose because they're the most cashed-up of all. Is this
fair? I think not.

Nick.
