That's a disagreement we'll have to have. Anytime this issue has been brought
up in a public setting (here, slashdot, etc.) has resulted in terrible press
and even corrective action. In particular, Network Solutions' attempt to
at this at the .com level was corrected. Of course I don't know what, if
any, ICANN pressure has to do with that, but the flash light practice was
apparently successful.
