i have some sympathy for this. but there are a lot of zones out there
already. i supposed the squatters have them, and putting a 100k or
whatever pricetag on squatting may actually slow it down. but will the
poor folk who can not have their fave domain name want to pay 100k?

imiho, this takes tying meaning to a domain way over the top.

this is interesting

sorry. i did not intend to impugn icann staff. it's the domainers,
lawyers, blah blah who go to the meetings, post on the lists, ... and
sway the silliness. though i will admit to not being impressed by some
previous top-level staff.
