I understand that, Ben and Alex, and thank you for engaging. But should Registry and Registrars be their own gatekeepers? I've seen how that alliance works with ICANN, and it seems like it could be a recipe for favouring the provider rather than the service user. Agreed, most of the public don't care how the system works, but I feel that's a broad generalisation. I just don't think the UK namespace should be a club for registrars and the registry. It's a bit like the NHS, where there is patient representation on selection boards (I do that myself). The system ought to be person-centred on the actual users. What I see is an industry clique. Let me put it this way: are you satisfied that Nominet works well, and that there's independent voice and critique at work in its operations?
