text string to an IP address at any greater rate, is another matter.

the extent to which the dominant players have perverted the process to

What 'the industry' wants of AuDA, it will get.  Bugger the punter$.

If voting could make any difference, it would be illegal.  Meanwhile,
the DNS continues to map text strings to IP addresses as well as ever.
