I am and have been a .org registrant since 1999.

Legacy gTLDs like .org are fundamentally different from ever burgeoning 
list of for-profit new gTLDs. Legacy TLDs should be considered a public 
trust, unlike the new gTLDs which were created, bought and paid for by 
private interests.

Registrants of legacy TLDs are entitled to price stability and 
predictability and should not be subject to possible uncapped price 
increases while receiving no benefit whatsoever in return.

Any renewal of the .org registry agreement must have a clause 
restricting fee increases to the current maximum of 10% and preferably 
to a smaller percentage given the current world economic circumstances.

ICANN appears to be currying favour with registries by removing price 
controls at the expense of the public interest and registrants.
