	Normally I'd agree with you, Randy...but it is my considered
	opinion that ICANN's apparent goals do not bode well for the
	continued growth of the Internet.  If anybody would like to
	hear why I feel that way, contact me off-list, since arguing
	about domain stuff has long been considered inapropriate for
	this mailing list (right, Randy?)
