as a very very very small domain name holder -- I used to hold 3, and now, due to co organizing the IGF USA, I have had to up my portfolio by 6 more names for defensive purposes for a very worthwhile voluntary effort, but it has 'quadrupled' the names I need to care about, and I would indeed care if one of them expired and I didn't have a way to 'salvage' it. So, I do appreciate the work of the BC members on this. I suspect that businesses with large portfoiios of defensive registrations do as well.
