Nothing's broken today with respect to the services in question.  I can only
envision additional costs, rigmarole, and coordination issues to come with a
multiple-provider regime.

Perhaps what's broken is that legacy holders like me don't pay -- at least,
that seems to be the source of some significant outrage here.
Unfortunately, the LRSA is a non-starter (to me and others I know) because
of potential dilution of rights to the resource, as I've articulated
before.  Barring a change to that, and with no other way in, we're stuck.
Were that different, I for one would cheerfully sign, pay, and enjoy more
formal participation.  All I can do today is cooperate by keeping my
information current.

Carrots and sticks are uncompelling to the legacy holder.

$0.02,
Eric
