Question registry operator, service provider and Sponsoring organization difference??

a lot of times I see these terms while reading about some extensions and don't able to have a certian describe to them, for example:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afilias
Afilias is the registry operator of .info and .aero .. and the service provider of .org ext.
what is the defferent between the registry operator and the service provider??
ICANN sign the ext. contract with the registry operator as I see in the agreement, then what is the use of the service provider exactly??
also, what is the use (meaning) of the Sponsoring organization if .asia for example is (Sponsoring organization) by dotasia.org and back-end registry opreated by Afilias?? why dotasia sign the contract with ICANN: http://www.icann.org/announcements/a...nt-07dec06.htm
shouldn't Afilias sign this contract??
what am missing here to know the differences between all of these terms....
which of these organizations I had to watch to get the latest news about the ext. the registry operator or the service provider ...... ??

Re: registry operator, service provider and Sponsoring organization difference??

With the Dot Asia example, what I think it means is that the Sponsoring Organisation does have the capability to run a registery so they are sub-contracting it out to Afilias, who arguably do. They effectively stand to make huge profits if it is successful, but have invested very little up front, I would guess, so if the whole thing goes tits up, they don't stand to loose a great deal of money. Not surprising they are not very upfront with IDN, as Afilias are only just getting their heads around that one.
