I wouldn't want any one company to be in charge of so many domains. I think 40 gtlds controlled by 40 companies would work as long as the distinction between the intended purpuse or flavour of the domain is clear. .museum and .aero for example are unlikely to cause much confusion and are distinct. This form of 'product differentiation' would also help to keep the demand for each domain more inelastic, and therefore retain their value much more than if the domains were in close competition with eachother.

Also our minds can remember a lot of distinct domains much easier than similar meaning ones, since they are associated and visualised very differently helping us to remember them.
