ICANN is surely aware that .org domains are the default TLDs for
nonprofit organisations worldwide, and has been for decades.

What is the purpose of making this change, and exposing such
organisations to excessive fee increases? That's exactly what will
happen if the reasonable caps currently in place are removed. A
perfect example of this can be found in the pharmaceuticals industry
and its massive price increases in recent years.

I'm not sure how long the people behind this proposed change have been
working in the internet industry, but this proposal seems excessively
punitive towards tens of thousands of organisations that tend to have
a social interest, which makes the change antithetical to the founding
ideals of the internet.

I'd like to see ICANN reject this proposed change and maintain the
current pricing structure, for the benefit of thousands or
organisations directly, and via their work, for billions of people
