Olivier;

I found the report encompassing. The only thing that I would add is how
much $$ the total business is making.

Having said that, now I can see why ICANN is reducing its budget. GTld
growth is flat. I wonder if that has to do with sites like Facebook and
such were people create pages very easily for all kind of purposes without
acquiring a domain name.
