The (2) points into "the Global Internet Community".
Whatever restrictions we may start to devise, it will end up as GIC.
Some time ago I named "dot Org" the fourth dimension of our Internet 
world - each and every Internaute may need to take a domain name there.
We have icann.org, dnso.org, centr.org, wwtld.org, schneiders.org ... 
each and every formal or informal group of any type of users
discussing together set an dot Org domain name.

I do not know. I doubt.
Is Verisign providing any stats on revoked domain names for lack of 
correct information ? Or any Registrar ? 
Looking only on technical aspects - in March 2000, Men and mice, 
reported about 72.5 percent of incorrect zones under dot Com (dot Fr 
had the best score with slightly less than 30 percent ... and I know 
the time we spent on that) - who cares about quality ?

I appreciate all your comments to my message.
