Re: [registrars] Teleconference re: Post Testbed Phase

For those of you who haven't seen this yet, it looks like DoC is ready to make
an announcement tomorrow:

Ken, I also have some additional thoughts on the agenda for the teleconference:

1. internic.net as a public resource and signpost for all registrars
2. equal terms to all resellers -- as we all know, NSI currently does not hold
its resellers accountable if the end customer defaults on payment (see NSI's
business account agreement at
3. the cost of doing business should be the same for all registrars -- if the
end customer defaults, the registrars lose $18 to the registry; NSI loses
nothing (NSI registrar pays NSI registry $18)
