Please do not remove price caps on .orgs - if you do so then only the wealthiest of corporations would be able to hold on to their domains. Existing small businesses will lose their customers (effectively destroying their business). They will incur huge marketing costs to inform their customers of their new domain name. It would also be incredibly difficult for a small business to distinguish itself from other domains, since they will no longer have the unique and familiar .org domain. A web domain is an integral part of a companies online identity - by disrupting the status quo, you may gain some revenue in the short term, but will lose most of your users in the long term since people will be forced to switch to alternatives domains.
