Subject: Should be internationally free and allow the owner to set website inheritance

ICANN would be best served on a council that's both open and not for profit. Also, we should invite free nations like the UK and Canada into part of ICANN. One thing that's a nuisance: what would happen if your friend's domain expires? Some websites specialize in swooping up the expired domain and puts your hard work into someone else's hands. Is there any way to arrange 2-4 appoved inheritors for a domain in case the originator of the domain vanishes at an inopportune time? This way, if you come close to losing that domain and you and 3 other buddies work on the site, one of the 3 other buddies can register the domain and the domain will be his instead of a generic search/ad page takeover group.

Thanks for giving the American public this opportunity,
