Re: [wg-c] Re: Importance of the Registry
One the whole a good analysis, but it lacks a punch line. Which of the three
alternatives do you support? I interpret what you wrote as an argument for alternative

In other words, you said that there are several plausible conditions, such as --a
--a limited purpose registry
When compulsory sharing would not make sense.
You also pointed out that sharing does not necessarily limit the monopoly power of a
dominant registry, and that there are competitive constraints on registries without
market power, regardless of whether they are shared or not.
Therefore, sharing should not be mandated by rule.
Is this your position?
