It's pretty obvious that sunrise periods exist primarily for the purpose of
giving ICANN insiders a head start -- (and preferential pricing) over the
rest of the world at domain acquisition. That such practice is considered
uncontroversial and ethical is just one more example of the altered reality
inside the ICANN bubble.

I find it truly unfortunate that this culture and design has evolved such
that only radical intervention from outside this bubble -- from sources
such as the California Attorney General -- can really affect ICANN's impact
on end users. It's good to know that such backstops exist when the internal
process to protect end users reliably fails, even if they only act in
extreme circumstances.
