it is not yet clear to me that a single uniform policy solves enough of
the problems we see in the current system to just leap into it. does it

this is not yet entirely clear to me. e.g. i can envison a very minimal
domain name conflict resolution policy (dncrp) which covers a minimum base
(prohibit illegal acts, whatever that means, and define cybersquatting)
and yet has add-ons which may vary between registrars. so what is the
absolute minimum uniform dncrp which is really needed?

currently, we have the courts. i have not yet been educated why, when
given a possibly new set of rules, the current adjudicators can not be
trusted to apply them. why do we need to enthrone a whole new set of

given that we hope registries can be highly automated, made simpler,
smaller, and maybe some day distributed, it seems to me that the registrar
is the place one wants to play with policy. Let the registry become a
