Some folks find competition in service providers beneficial.

I agree that competition can be quite useful and the result doesn't necessarily 
have to be be fragmented; it's quite possible to provide transparent referrals 
to make the services appear as a consistent whole.  This requires understanding
where the competition is being introduced; is it a single registry and multiple
registrars, or multiple registries and synchronization, or some other model? Is
there an architecture for this future model, or perhaps even a starting set of 
goals to work towards agreement on?   David - can you share more about what you
believe is being proposed?
