Dear Mr. Okuda:

I was surprised this week to go to a plumbing supply store in the city of 
Orange, CA, (specializing in irrigation for lawns and gardens, drip 
irrigation, etc.) and say a sign saying "We reserve the right to refuse 
service to anyone".  It's been years since I've seen such, I thought it was 
fraught with so much risk that no one would make such a public statement.

The 7Names case is certainly a move in the right direction.  So are some of 
the conditions of the U.S. Senate proposal.

Personal regards,

P.S. I'm posting this Email to the Registrar Consistency mailing list.
