      Why?

Because the supposed categorizations were not enforced at the time of sale. Furthermore, there has been absolutely no enforcement by ICANN or anyone else to insure these guidelines were followed.

What does this mean? It means any attempt to categorize these names now is not only un-realistic, but a violation of free speech laws.

ICANN should make sure registars enforce a domain names proposed categorization: but even then, there is no way they can enforce the content and police the internet to insure that webmasters are publishing content appropriate to the domain names category.

So, logically, any attempt to categorize the internet, even with new domain names, is impossible, due to a lack of control and free speech laws...
