Subject: Majority preferences ARE relevant.



Let there be co-domains such that .uk and .brit would point to same TLD. And .usa and .us would point to same TLD.  Then let's see which is preferred.

I say that most Brits would prefer .brit to .uk (which sounds like yuck).  Let the markets decide!

As for standardization, I say CCTLD's should be 4 letters (with some being 3 letters): .usa, .mex, .can, being among the few 3-lettered ones.

Two letters are INSUFFICIENT for COMMON-SENSE abbreviations.

For example, the CCTLD for Equatorial Guinea (Guinée Equatoriale in that country's French language) is .gq (not common sense at all) but it could be .gueq (common sense) instead!

Let the suggested new CCTLD's (4-letters with some 3-letters) point to the same websites as the current 2-letter CCTLD's.  Then let the market choose which ones to promote.  Most businesses will promote both for a time and then slowly drop the 2-letter codes.
