Which is why Israel decided to fund the NCC with a 1000ECU contribution
per year.  At some point the NCC might have to fix costs per country (which
is what the OU is supposed to do), but until that time comes around that
doesn't mean we should all freeload on the services of the NCC (registering
domains and people and networks takes time as well as the excellent
quarterly report they have produced so far).
