We are on the verge of name-war and fragmentation of the Internet. This is

It's an interesting concept, but one that will never see realization. Not,
if current track-record is anything to go by. Fortunately for the rest of
the world, market forces are very powerful.

1) The customer, whatever else they may be, is always right.
2) When in doubt, see rule 1.
3) Ignore rule 2 at great peril.

ICANN is failing to acknowlege rule 3. Alternate root registries are a
natural consequence of that failure.
