Thanks for sharing this, Andy. This appears to be a major governance
failure on the part of ICANN (sadly, not for the first time). I'm glad
Wikimedia is among the first orgs on this list.

I don't think it's too late to stop this, especially as all evidence
points to corrupt inside wheeling-and-dealing. I would normally not
link to El Reg, but the connections Kieren has dug up deserve further
investigation by more reputable outlets.

Utterly unacceptable attempt to enclose the commons. Please do help
continue direct attention to this.
