The ICANN Staff rationale for this negotiated
settlement was already announced two weeks ago on the
Registrars list -- see

It's really a lousy decision between two parties that
fails to address the issues raised earlier by Tim Ruiz
and Jon Nevett -- see their comments at

Staff simply took out the word "register" in an effort
to placate the registrars, and reduced the number of
names "under direct management" by 1000 -- nothing
more than cosmetic surgery on the earlier proposed
contract language.

The result of this agreement is already in conflict
with Recommendation 19 in the new gTLDs GNSO Report:
"Registries must use only ICANN accredited registrars
in registering domain names" (although, in my view,
it's a really stupid recommendation that probably
violates antitrust laws anyway). 

Karl Auerbach also makes a good point regarding
modifications to current registry contracts; his
comment is here:
