Why don't we get information from Verisign, Geotrust and other companies in that market who should be included.

A reasonable idea, but I would still prefer to remove Verisign from the list and avoid the baggage that accompanies them as a registry and former monopoly provider.

If we include them, we should encourage the other registry operators to provide us with their input as well. Neustar, for instance, does business in other markets where their expertise and specialty likely exceeds that possessed by Verisign in the payment processing space.

In any event, Geotrust is an excellent resource as they play in both the certificate (PKI) and payment processing space.

I was also thinking that we should include Yahoo! and MSN. I suspect that we will gain substantial perspective from their experiences with enrolling customer data and provide us with a clearer understanding of the continuum of practices employed by ISPs and other similar online service providers.
