OK, forget DNS for a sec. Why not shift IP addresses and protocols away from Uncle Sam?

Let me set up a competitor ( And anyone else)

DNS operation need NOT a monopoly. One could set up an alternate services with alternate defined terms and conditions.

I fancy that the ICANN DNS database "SHOULD" be legitimately mined, but even without doing it, a clever set of Ts&Cs ( $0 price for registration) and automated registration could create a usable copy pretty quickly..

Ts&Cs by TLD could include domains that define jurisdiction, domains that "promise" Kosher, Halal, Christian, Free Speech, only sites ....

And nice two fingers to everyone involved in the ICANN débâcle

Any support?
