As to Verisigns actual outlay, I would suggest that you pull
their 10K from Edgar and take a look for yourself. So far,
I did not see any outlay of $$ for .com, .net, or .org registry
development. And $200m really isn't all that significant
amount for a $1b Market Cap company as their ability to
barrow money it about 3 to 5 times that amount...
