Hi Olivier,

It's most likely an attempt to have stability... knowing well ahead of time
how much money is available for the budget rather than being dependent on
the trials of the domain-selling marketplace.

It also frees ISOC from a significant conflict of interest should it want
to get involved more deeply in DNS policy.

It may also be a guess/gamble by ISOC that .org has peaked (under the
restrictions it had) and this is the time to extract maximum value.
