Great. Just wanted to be clear on this official policy. We can still
register ourselves without paying any service, anywhere in the US domain.

And any "service", fee or no fee, can update the _same_ subdomains.
There is no subdomain "ownership".

Also, there was another posting saying that IANA had made a limitation
last year for each "service" only serving 50 US sub-domains.

I didn't see any such announcement. Could you update the US domain RFC
