Subject: Here's the value ...

"I just don't see the value here. If our customers really want their .web names to resolve, they can ask that we place them under webtld.com (instead of web.com). That's only 3 more letters. So foo.web would be foo.webtld.com (instead of foo.web.com)."

Oh, I thought you were referring to foo.web.webtld.com [quite cumbersome].

But foo.webtld.com would be as valuable as foo.shop.new.net [in that main root viewers would only need append 'tld.com' to see a foo.web domain, like they'd append '.new.net' to see a foo.shop domain].

However, foo.web.net would be more valuable, because main root viewers would only need append '.net' to see a foo.web domain, less cumbersome and less confusing.

Remember: KISS [Keep It Simple for Stupids].
