I am a .org registrant.

If you are to remove price caps, then you MUST break the monopoly held by PIR.  Not only should you break the monopoly but PIR should have to PAY MARKET PRICE for the TLD if you want to remove the caps.  They were GIVEN a monopoly on .org.  PIR should be a steward and if they cannot fulfill this role then another organization should take over

I believe that legacy gTLDs are fundamentally different from for-profit new gTLDs. Legacy TLDs are essentially a public trust, unlike new gTLDs which were created, bought and paid for by private interests. Registrants of legacy TLDs are entitled to price stability and predictability and should not be subject to price increases with no maximums. Unlike new gTLDs, registrants of legacy TLDs registered their names and made their online presence on legacy TLDs on the basis that price caps would continue to exist.

Thank you for your consideration
