I find I must agree with this. I also must point out that Image
Online Design's ongoing request to add its .web registry far
supercedes the EU's request for its .eu registry. Should ICANN
take action on .eu, without first taking action on .web (and
the small number of existing registry requests that have
been formally requested of IANA and/or ICANN), I cannot
begin to imagine the problems that would be created.
It is ironic to remember that AlterNIC, in 1995, was told,
"go ahead and create your own root servers if you must,"
yet the EU's threat to do the same is making ICANN jump.
It's all about who you fear.
