Yes, Jon accredited (delegated) *registries*You are correct, the process was
informal. I agree that in a commercial/legal/political environment the process
must now be formalized.

But...the issue of centralization of that authority is what some of us are
complaining about. Diversity of models and forms is better. The only reason for
absolute uniformity/centralization is to reduce the policing, monitoring, and
protection costs of the trademark/IP holders.
