@ Quite simply, when the coop agreement ends, the Internic no longer

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....
