The InterNIC appreciates the concerns of the Internet community about the 
auction of a block of domain names. Until now, we have maintained the 
position that we have no oversight responsibility regarding the resale of 
domain names other than they be actively used on the Internet. If you have 
any constructive comments about the role that the domain registrar should 
take in this case, we will be happy to help develop an IANA sanctioned policy 
to exercise such a role.

There is a list already setup to discuss domain policy-related matters - 
domain-policy at  To subscribe, send a message to 
domain-policy-request at with "subscribe domain-policy" in the
body of the message.
