The problem is that USG still thinks that it can have an opinion
on DNS issues.

Worse, major problms of a GP, such as US-based incorporation
and lack of understanding on trademark issues, remains same.

The only change, it seems to me, is in wording that it is now
less obvious that USG is acting for the benefit of NSI.
