Do we need the relationship between PAB, POC and CORE to be the same as it
was before the USG turned the new TLD business around? Perhaps we should
no longer be "joined at the POC" so to speak. I think we would all have
more sucess if we lobbied as three seperate groups for something as opposed
to three branches of one (almost) registry.
