True, but in the old .su domain things are more encouraging, and the .ru  
domain (which is still the bulk of runet) shows a far steadier increase,  
with numbers measured in 1000s.

Is the drop-off associated with the first sets of renewal fees coming due?  
If so, the early growth might have been anomalously fast, and corrected.  
Another year or two will add clarity I  suppose.
