Except that, Kieran-like, he editorialises:

Sullivan responded in a blog post making the somewhat remarkable case that .org was never really intended to be for non-profit outfits.
and gets it wrong. The case isn't "remarkable"; it's strictly true. RFC1591 defined .org in 1994 with these words:
ORG - This domain is intended as the miscellaneous TLD for organizations that didn't fit anywhere else. Some non-government organizations may fit here.
Nothing whatever to do with non-profit.
