You asked:

"Can I continue to opt out of these additional services and not have my fees increased, please."

I said:

"That is also a possibility"

It requires that we not only don't include these services, but that we 
don't normalize the fee structures between ISPs, Endusers, and Legacy 
address holders whereby they pay similar fees for similar services, i.e.
if the recurring fees for ISPs go down, then the maintenance fees for
for everyone has go up.  There are some additional services that we can 
include in this process, but indeed it would still be an increase.

We don't have to change the ISP fee structure, but as a practical matter,
ISPs are paying significantly more on a recurring basis for registration
services and depending on their circumstances, may not be actually using
any significantly more or different services from end-user organizations.
