One way of funding the ADNA would be by a levy on third levels approvals.
This is a user pays model to be levied against profit generating
registries.

The 2LD authority would post a levy to ADANA for the approval service in a
similar way that Telcos post tariffs to AUSTEL. ADANA could then levy x %
of the amount charged to the end user.

If you to give it away for free then there is no penalty. If you run a 2LD
that wishes to charge fee for service then you pay ADNA.

The posting of 'tariffs' would also prevent any confusion on what price is
a domain name and could act as a central 'shopping' point for future
owners of 3LDs. A simple rule for tariff changes could be put in place
such as 20 working days notice (for example).

To calculate x % it would be necessary to know how many domains in the
chargeable 2LD are approved every week.
