Re: Some analytics data (past week) for 120 chinese idns.

ICANN committed a major error for not coming down hard on CNNIC for splitting the root.

Of course, if they'd pulled finger and fired up puny TLD's years ago, it wouldn't be a problem.

Traffic data at Alexa is showing a doubling of traffic to verisign's plug-in host since start of July.

Someone flipped a switch somewhere.

Interesting to see where the traffic to verisgin-grs.com is coming from:

China 27.1%
Turkey 11.5%
USA 9.9% (lots of US surfers navigating in their native language?)
Egypt 9.1%
Morocco 2.7%

A visit to http://www.verisign.com/support/registrar/ shows an interesting advisory dated 6/6/07:

"Advisory: Decommissioning of Web-based Navigation system for the distribution of i-Nav plugin"

Can't get to it - only for registrar eyes apparently.
