I am a .org registrant.

Legacy gTLDs are fundamentally different from for-profit new gTLDs and should be treated that way. Legacy TLDs are what the internet was built on. They are essentially a public trust. They are very different than new gTLDs which were created, bought and paid for by private parties. Registrants of these legacy extensions should be entitled to price predictability & stability.

 Removing price caps is unfair to the millions of domain registrants. They will have no price protections. Every registrant will be at the complete mercy and whims of the registry, meaning their brand and online identity will be essentially held hostage. 

This could result in a massive transfer of wealth from millions of non-profits to one non-profit, with no benefits to the domain registrants.
