OK...that agreement ends in 18 months...?...September 1998.

What is wrong with the plan to clone the InterNIC many times
that is well underway ?

Here is the short form...
	1. Clone the InterNIC 49 times
	2. Start each new clone with 3 TLDs and 1 /8
	3. Use the Infrastructure fund to provide $250,000 grants
	4. Remove rocks from the soil, plant it and let it grow....
