Just as much as a non-profit would. Both want to maximize profits - one
for the shareholders and one to increase growth (or perhaps to pad the
salary of the officers, but I don't like to ascribe such nefarious motives).
In both cases we need contractual limits to avoid such activity if one
feels that consumers need to be protected.
On the other hand, the argument could be made that nobody would
buy from a registry that didn't promise such protections up-front.
NSI is the exception, with an existing customer base. Using NSI as
an example for new registries is an excellent idea when developing
consumer protection, and questionable otherwise.
This whole argument just makes me think that it's only fair that
