You mentioned in your pre-announcement TLD operators being eligible for
this new list, but made no mention of domain name registrars.
I count 141 ICANN "fully: accrediated domain name registrars, with an
unknown number of secondary registrars due to systems like OpenSRS.
These organizations collectively handle second-level name resolution for
the overwhelming majority of the millions of .com, .net, and .org domains
in use on the Internet. And while I haven't done a survey, I'd surmise
that they overwhelmingly use BIND.
Will these 141 organizations many of whose business relies on BIND be
eligible for your fee-based list? Do they consitute providers of "critical
infrastructure" in your eyes?
