>And with the many new TLD's there will be reduced incentive to buy up domains for resale at rip-off prices.

As I have said before:

Millions of gTLDs are being sat on by ICANN. They are the worlds greatest 'cybersquatters' (to use their definition of word).

Analogy - What sort of world would it be if we only had two hundred or so towns - each allowed only one High Street (Americans may call it Main Street)?

The Free Market determines price and an abundance of TLD will give much greater choice to people, making good domain names cheaper to buy.
