Being the owner of several .COM domains I believe the price increases being written into this contract are not good for the long term benefit of the .COM tld. 
1. A TLD that currently has a healthy competition of registrars should not have the administrator of the TLD involved as a registrar. That seems ripe for conflicts of interest. 2. The price increases are well above inflation. The .COM TLD consists of millions of small businesses and individuals that would be harmed over the next decade by the high ceilings for raises written into the amendment. 3. I find it a little odd that Versign is giving ICANN $20M and then the very same non-profit agency then awards the donating company sweet contract that allows for such large price increases. 
I seriously recommend that ICANN reject the current proposal in amendment 3 and return with something that's more reasonable and doesn't come across as a giveaway to a TLD administrator.
