I am a .org registrant and a not-for-profit or non-profit organization. 

Telling the .org registry that it can charge any price it wants for renewing a domain name is a very bad idea where .org registrants are already stretched for funds . Why would you allow them to set a crazy high price? They could try to force the domain owners to pay a very high price each year to renew their domain name, and if the domain owner either won't or can't, then the .org registry could take away their domain name, set a high registration price on it, and then try to find someone else who is willing to pay a high price for it. This is very unfair to long time .org domain owners who may see their prices raised sky high for no reason.

.Org has been working just fine for decades where the prices maybe go up a little bit each year. Allowing huge price increases from one year to the next could ruin .org for everybody.
