Google as Registrar, Charleston Road Registry, Domain Names

Google is a domain names owner and domain name registrar (like GoDaddy or Network Solutions). Google owns Charleston Road Registry (an ICANN approved Registry like Verisign). What exactly is Google planning? Who knows? -- follow the links below --

Google: "Here are some of the domains we are excited about launching. Most of them will be open for you to register and use however you like. Some have rules which specify how the domain may be used. . . . please check back regularly to see our updated offerings. . . ."

Charleston Road Registry – Google: "When will these domains be available for registration? ICANN has committed to delegating approximately 20 top level domains each week, starting later this year. Delegation order was determined by ICANN’s prioritization lottery. To check on CRR’s domains, please visit this page. We'll post a list of our registrar partners once our domains are open for registration, and be sure to update it regularly. . . . Please fill out this form if you're interested in becoming a registrar partner. . . . Charleston Road Registry (CRR) is a subsidiary of Google. Because ICANN requires that registrars and registries remain separate entities, and Google is already an ICANN-accredited registrar, CRR exists as a separate company from Google. We don't favor any registrar over any others in terms of pricing, awarding domains, or any other domain operations; we'll partner with any ICANN-accredited registrars that are interested in our domains."
