Might be nice if you change the name slightly to The Americas Registry
for Internet Numbers so you don't seem so much like damn yankees.

Network Solutions, Inc. will initially fund ARIN until fees are imposed 
and will offer continued financing until such time as it is a stable,
self-sufficient entity capable of funding itself through its membership
dues, registration and maintenance fees.

Why is Network Solutions funding this instead of NSF? Or are they just
passing through the money that NSF has already paid for this function?

Anyway, sounds like a step in the right direction.
