Yes - in the first time it could be very hard to get this money. In the
later beeing of ICANN we should think about accepting this money. And
therefor we must think *now* about it because later we can't say 'no', can we?
If in 1/2 year the webpage www.icann.org has about 500'000 hits per month -
why shouldn't we put ads on it? My opinion is that this would provide the
organization not any dependence but through a way like this ICANN can get
money - and if we do it in the right way enough money...
