Gee Larry - it almost sounds as if you have a vested interest being allowed
to do what you like.  I can just hear Bill Gates now ... "Bring on the
Internet run by operating system suppliers".

:  
:  Exactly.
:  
:  Registrars in fact feel to a large degree that auDA is 
:  overly influenced by the demand side - there are 6 board 
:  members representing the buying public and only three 
:  representing supply. Then there is Chris (lets call his 
:  position neutral for now), and the Chair who does an 
:  excellent job of being neutral to the board composition, 
:  which can mean more not on registrars side than on in practice.
:  
:  auDA is not run by registrars. It should be - if it was, 
:  policy would be objective and automatic, names would be 
:  cheaper and overall a far more rational and market driven 
:  system would pertain. I think that that would deliver a 
:  better result for all - including those that need 
:  protection. For example, I think you would find registrars 
:  keen to have a DRP that was affordable - its in our 
:  interests for disputes to be handled efficiently and cheaply.
:  
:  Bring on auDA run by supply!
