I've already stated my opinion - I believe that all of the newly proposed 
two-character domain names should be restricted.

But while i've ranting and raving, I forgot to mention another thing...

EN is already totally ubiquitous in URLs all over the internet. It signifies 
that you're visiting a page in the english language.  I would imagine that a 
.EN two-character domain name would be totally ripe for abuse.

I don't think that we should fool ourselves.  Many, many people aren't familiar 
with URLs, and something like an Amazon.en or a Target.en could easily fool 

There's little to no reason why this domain should be offered or why it's
