[registrars] $1 or not $1


Is anyone else interested in how quickly ' variable fee equal to no more
than $1 per domain per year' has turned into 'An initial registrar fee
schedule of $5,000 per year plus $1 per year per assigned name was adopted
by the ICANN Board as part of its public comment and decision process in
establishing registrar accreditation guidelines for the .com, .net and .org
domains in March, 1999'.
i.e. ICANN turned a fee of no more than $1 into $1 overnight.
