I strongly disagree with the removal of price caps on .org domain, since 
there are no arguments justifying it.

Removing the price cap would expose myself and a global community of 
non-profits to the risk of quickly-escalating exploitative pricing.

If price caps are eliminated, competition will not keep prices in check: 
there is no competition, one cannot get a .org domain anywhere else.

When there is a unique product that cannot be easily substituted for any 
other, there is no effective competition.

In the absence of competition, registrants can be protected from 
extortionate pricing only through pricing constraints, such as price caps.
