We are talking about today.
If you only look at today, you may fail tomorrow. To not fail tomorrow, you need to look at the history.
Just as Verisign could improve over the years, so can CNNIC. Logical?
I was in China ten years ago. I know how things have changed.

This is true and it is certainly a good thing for today. Otherwise, I could not build a decent portfolio as a latecomer.

There is no doubt that China wants .cn and fly. To achieve that, they know they need to build the trust. And I bet the trust will come before IDN takes off.

By the way, I like your blog very much. Keep up the good work!
