A sensible move for any large organisation - protects future plans and avoids standard industry ripoffs!

Maybe they just want to get complete whois info on .CN domains to weed out spam?

Yes, I agree with Lord Majestic. I don't think they're planning to sell domains, I think they've become a registrar for the same reason Google did... to gain access to the full WHOIS information.

yep I agree as well, in this day and age search is trying to get smarter and smarter, getting full whois data means they can be on the bleeding edge of content freshness.
