Re: ICANN Announces Timeline for Development of a Project for the Technical Test of Inter

As far as I understand, Verisign is behind ICANN's decisions most of the time, so it looks like ICANN is showing the public they are open to several approaches and will be testing both. However, the DNAME solution is the preferred way of doing things. They just can't announce it RIGHT NOW. It is all PR/PC stuff at this point.

In a very remote case that DNAME will not happen (and I stress the word "remote"), we will still make out like bandits. DNAME is great to have, but not a must to have.
Asking a local domainer who missed the boat on IDNs in his language if IDNs are valuable is like asking your wife whether your mistress is pretty.
