I think the question was if Rob allowed someone to use,
and then someone else came along with a browser with the same name or
something and also wanted

It also seems there may be some confusion about allowing the use of names
and hosting those names. is hosted by netlink and Rob.
However, if Rob decided to let someone use (Now somebody's
gonna HAVE to come out with xyz browser. <g>), that doesn't mean that Rob
has to host it or even have ANYTHING to do with its administration.  It
can be hosted by anyone else as long as the nameserver entries and such
are there.  Then, whoever is over the hosting machine is in charge of it.
