I doubt that this price change/rise is a coincidence. However we really
don't know one way or the other. But it looks terribly suspicious.

Yes surely! However some business people do not look at business
and profit in that manner. This is why regulation is needed and also
regulation that is enforcable. Currently in this instance the ICANN
Staff and BoD are responsible for that enforcment once DOC/NTIA
has approved any policy that ICANN Recomends. And any policy
that ICANN recomends must have the broad support of the stakeholders,
or is supposed to, in accordance with the White Paper and the MoU, before
it becomes a policy recomendation to DOC/NTIA. Currently and from the
beginning of ICANN's existance this process has been neglected and even
ignored by the ICANN BoD and staff. As such, ICANN has garnered
much distrust from the stakeholders world wide, and until corrected
shall continue to do so...
