So we should automatically accept every suggestion that has minor impact, 
no matter how silly the suggestion?

The rule for rule-making is that you do NOT make changes just for the heck 
of it.  The criterion cannot be "we do not see any danger in making the 
change".  The criterion must be: "we see significant benefit in making the 
change."  Hence the burden for making their case lies with those seeking 
the change.

Your personal wonderings about people's motives are entirely inappropriate 
in a public discussion, and this list has enforcement against it.  For 
example, the fact that *I* wonder why you feel the need to question Kent's 
motives, is also inappropriate for discussion on this list.

Of course you would.

But then, you would also like to see your independent .web forced onto ICANN.

So anyone who forks over 50K should be allowed to be a member of that
