I am blind and use my computer at home, and even though the service I am
currently using is called Comcast@Home, it is my belief that that those
who use the internet at home should be able to use @home whether its a
non-profit org or a private citizen.  The use org should be for
non-profit groups only and com should be for the private citizens. Now
if you where to add the state abbreveation ex. john doe123@va.gov  and
for the non-profit groups ex. janedoe@ms.md.npg  and than the retired,
student, private citizen would now be like this: ex.
jimdoe@wmc.student.com  or tg@pikesville.md.com and the last is

Subject:   Comment: DNS TLD Registration - Favoured Method of Overseeing and

I disagree strongly with the ARIN proposal and the further involvement
of NSI with the registration of TLDs -- 

I feel that the government, and not the commercial sector,
should continue to control and administer domain names.

The registration of a domain name is a diplomatic, and not commercial,
act. US International diplomacy depends on the noncommercial
administration of such domain names. Copyrights of single words are

Domain Names


Following are my comments, marked with the paragraph and subparagraph of the 
section of the original document which they refer to:

B(2) The establishment of additional TLD's will ease some of the problem. 
Especially an establishment of additional TLD's for commercial organizations.

B(3) The registration entity should be a not-for-profit non-governmental 
organization that operates a primarily technical staff, with legal 
assistance. Parties that have a vested interest in DNS policies (ie 
business) should not be represented. Oversight by an executive agency of the 
government, in coordination with other national governments could ensure 
that policies were adhered to.

D(15) Each registrar should have exclusive control of one (or more) gTLD's. 
Dividing the responsibility of a gTLD among several entities is not good 
management policy. Responsibilities should be *clearly* defined. Keeping the 
responsibilities along gTLD lines is clean and simple.
