Courtesy and mutual respect is always a good recipe for working together, mixed
with professionalism and a little humor!
I'm not having much fun at the ITU WTSA, so I may be unable to contribute any
But I'll try on the courtesy, mutual respect, and professionalism!

What Marilyn says is true. ISPs do many of the registrations
for their customers in Argentina, and often act as proxy
BTW for Milton's benefit, I dont consider Tim's comments
to be "naive". In the search for middle consensus ground
between the two extremes in our discussions, it might be
more constructive if we avoid qualifying other people's
opinions, perhaps out of simple politeness.

> As to your question, Milton, there are different reasons why someone wants
to use a domain name, and indeed it is possible that a business, or an NGO,
or non profit might decide to use a name, registered to someone else, but
"loaned" to them as usable space. Some may view that it may not be the best
practice unless the "user" has an agreement/contract in writing, since they
will be making an investment on the content, and counting on maintaining the
access to the name space, however, I would not be surprised to hear about

hearing more from him.
> However, just on a personal contribution I can make, but Maggie might
elaborate on, many ISPs provide web pages for use by their registrants,
without the registration of a domain name. The AT&T consumer ISP provides
several web pages for use by their subscribers. Many others do as well.
