Yes, there is a secondary market that is fairly strictly controlled.  I see it
as keeping the namespace viable for everyone.  Yes, some of the restrictions
make it a little harder and there are a few more hoops to jump through but for
those that wish to use the system it is available.

I'm not so sure there would be all that much money, since the dot.com burst
the big money isn't around like it was, where they didn't look too closely at
what was being purchased.

Thank you.  I do believe we should discuss all these issues, we do need to
keep it civil however.
