I'm not opposed to Verisign registrar making a profit, if it offered a
Drop Service that operated at the registrar level, similar to existing
market participants such as Snapnames, eNom, NameWinner, etc. (I've
sent a list in a prior message). My problem is leveraging the monopoly
power of the registry, to enter a "new business", which puts existing
market participants out of business (surely all existing market
participants would not be able to continue in their business with the
proposed regime, but would be forced to only resell WLS subscriptions,
or exit the business entirely. That's anti-competitive, and removes
opportunities for innovation.
