I think you need to petition IANA directly (Postel, at least, does not
read NANOG that I know of) to freeze the .COM zone until InterNIC stops
screwing up the billing.  I take hardware from InterNIC, but I get my
marching orders from IANA, and if he says "stop transferring new .COM
zones from InterNIC" then I will make that change instantly, and so will
the rest of the roots.
