          I think the point here is that the earlier BIZ is on an alternate root server and so domain holders and users who want to choose that root system can freely do so.   My understanding of the process is that ICANN is not trying to shut down these alternate roots but are happy for them to compete.   

I'm not sure how ICANN could reasonably proceed with ANY new TLDs in their root system if they were prohibited in this way.  Over the world there are probably alternate root TLDs in just about every string you could imagine.   This would make it very hard for ICANN to do the job we all want, new and viable TLDs.
