I cannot imagine why any serious company would want, say,
companyname.biz when they could have a domain name that actually
matched their legal name.

C'mon, you geeks, let's implement things like

General_Motors.Corp
Motorola.Inc

and so on, with all the usual categories of organizations such as

.co    (Ford_Motor.Co)
.cos  (The Smithford Companies - fictional name)
.inc    (Motorola.Inc)
.&co
.corp  (General_Motors.Corp)
.co-inc
.llc
.pc
.plc
.ag
.gmbh
.freres
.bros
.group
.assoc

In general, anything short that is widely used, even
internationally, as the last word of a company name, should be
provided.

I suspect that, immediately, most companies would prefer to use the
top level domain most closely matching their actual company name's
ending, as soon as this were to become available.
