Sitefinder -- ICANN informed beforehand?
From the Boston Globe <http://tinyurl.com/nsf6>:
VeriSign began work on the system a year ago, spokesman Tom Galvin
said. "We began to think of a service that would help improve Web
navigation," he said. Galvin said VeriSign informed a major
Internet regulatory body, the Internet Corporation for Assigned
Names and Numbers (ICANN), of the Site Finder plan. He said ICANN
president Paul Twomey raised no objections.
An ICANN spokeswoman said she could neither confirm nor deny this.
