There is a difference between .org, a legacy extension created with
the support of the US government, that even predates the existence of
ICANN and the brand new extensions that have been added. While the new
extensions have different rules, no price controls, and no existing
registrants, the .org extensions have countless existing owners,
different characteristics, different history, and a different
ownership structure. How can ICANN justify ignoring these differences
when proposing that they be treated the same.

It is not fair to the millions of existing owners of .org domains. To
make matter worse, .org domains are commonly used for non-profit
organizations, who may be forced into abandoning their domains if the
cost of renewal becomes prohibitive, costing these organizations
enormous amounts of money in rebranding. ICANN must respect and
protect the owners of .org domain names.
