The fact China has been duping it's citizens that they are actually buying .公司 when they register a domain is borderline criminal, and creates a huge f*cking mess for someone to clear up.

If Verisign/ICANN bend over on this one, it is sending the message that "don't worry you can create an alternate root and by default inherit a slice of the real root later on" - as being deceptive in the first place, somehow gives them a god given right before anyone else.

it is going to be very interesting to see how this plays out - that's for sure.
