At the end of the day, for most people domain registration is an
inconsequential one-off procedure that they should do once and not worry
about again. In fact, for most it is a procedure done by proxy by their
ISP or web developer, so they don't know anything about it.

Such a mailout is treating the symptoms rather than curing the problem.
(Admittedly, at the moment the industry needs a bit of both..)

Wearing an "uneducated" domain name holder hat, I dont want to know
about my domain unless I have to renew it. Just like my business
name, and various other licences. I probably don't want to know the
intricacies of our industry. Similarly I don't want to know about how
my ISP makes routing arrangements, or where my office builder buys his

And now, back to reality. :)
