​Thanks for your thoughtful and detailed response, Alan.

Tom, it does seem that your efforts might be better directed at stirring
things up at a local​ level, but I think there has to be perceptible pain
to get any movement.The tradeoffs between privacy, WHOIS and the nexus
requirement might be a source of such pain. Currently, since proxy
addresses are forbidden under the nexus policy, no private citizen in NYC
can register a .nyc domain with revealing their personal address via WHOIS.
The allocation and oversight of neighborhood reserved names, as per your
recent meetup, is another.
