So create your own .travel/.xxx version. Who is stopping you?

Question is ...

-Do you have enough investment power?
-Are you good enough to convince VCs?
-What is your risk tolerance?
-Do you have a team of professionals?
-Can you afford to employ such high level professionals for a long period?
-Do you have 200 million user accessibility power?
-Do you have ISP support?
-Do you have support from Internet backbone providers?
-Do you have registrar/reseller support?
-Do you have webmaster/business owner/end user support?

New.net is a legitimate business with a subtantial amount of user
accessibility base behind them covering millions of internet users and
thousands of domains registered under their system. No one can have a
monopoly power over them to jeopardize their business interests and their
current business dealings with other registrars/resellers.

Do you think registrars would prefer a Tralliance version of .travel OR
New.net's version of .travel? Tralliance version is an absolute loser. How
many .name/.kids.us domains have been sold so far? There is no point to
argue, no one can shut New.net's business down. PERIOD.

As a side note, New.net didn't introduce a clash. They introduced the
"strings" that ICANN discarded last round.
