Red herring: RFC 1591

".org has never been reserved for non-profit registrants."

But it became the home of most non profit registrants. How does the above quote justify selling off .org for a billion? How does it justify selling the thing they were entrusted with to the highest bidder? Why should they get to pull a billion dollar out of the paying registrants?
