Like what?  The only investments I know that are suitable for such a large 
amount of money with negligible risk are treasury bills which currently 
pay 0.15%, close to nothing.

If you are aware of suitable investments that pay more, what are they?  If 
you're not, what's your point?

Also remember that this money is all supposed to be spent in short order, 
as ICANN processes the applications.  If they still have a big chunk of it 
a year from now, refunds will be in order, not investments.
