I understand from a recent report that you are planning to lift price 
caps imposed on the operators of the .org TLD.

Given that the operator is a monopoly provider of names used by millions 
of individuals and organisations around the world, the potential for 
market abuse should price controls be removed is extreme.

I therefore request that such caps are retained in full and, if 
anything, the renewal price is reduced over time - as would be the case 
in a properly operating market subject to significant economies of scale 
and automation.

This should of course also be the case for other TLDs in the same situation.
