Agree. However, there's also the other aspect, the proliferation of shadow
registrars that only serves the purpose of augmenting the "firing power" of
an organization for things like grabbing deleted names. My feeling is that
we would need to elaborate a more complex fee structure, that is not the
"one size fits all" (i.e. same fee for every applicant), but takes into
account also other factors, like the location. It is, of course, not as
simple as it looks, because nothing could prevent well organized business to
do things like to delocalize registrars in developing countries, to pay
lesser fees.

Thats alot of nonsense. The problem with ICANN is that it has very little real estate to offer. If it actually had any real estate most of these issues would settle themselves. It's like a two sided monopoly - no control - but alot of power.

To stop this farce ICANN need to correct the fractures it has created on the internet and adopt all current existing top level domains in the known public root. The monopoly in domain names will end and free trade will commense.
