> History shows us that Dr. Postel was weeks away from creating new TLDs when the process was taken from him by the Internet Society and their IAHC effort. We all know how that, and their creation, CORE, went: it was stopped, rather violently, by the U.S. Government.

I would suggest this was due to Big Business interests wanting to take over this obvious 'pot of gold' and the Trademark Lobby.

Who agrees and who disagrees?
