[comments-dotorg] NCDNHC Comments on .org

The Noncommercial Domain Name Holders Constituency
sees the policies in the current draft as a well-crafted balance 
of the various constituencies' interests. 

We strongly favor a noncommercial management organization 
for .org and expect it to be broadly supported by and responsive 
to noncommercial Internet users. 

As we have made clear on numerous occasions, we oppose 
any attempt to restrict registrations in .org or to create
new dispute initiative procedures. We prefer to rely on
marketing practices and end-user choice to differentiate 
the domain.

The NCDNHC joins the business constituency in 
calling the Board's attention to the competition 
policy issues raised by the divestiture of .org.
We urge the Board to increase competition and 
diversity and encourage new investment in the 
provision of gTLD registry services, by ensuring that 
the market position of existing dominant actors are not 
entrenched nor enhanced through participation in, 
taking an interest in, or contracting to deliver 
critical services to, the new .org management
