"They have not been approved by ICANN to be considered for new TLD - have they?"

Who said that new.net or name.space have been approved by ICANN? I wonder???

But domains from these registries could be accessed through the USG root.

"Anybody could do what new.net are doing, offering fourth level domains to customers - it has no legitimacy."

I said there is nothing special to run a registry or to run an alt root. Nearly everyone could do that ( see dotGOD.com, dotSEX.com, dotUSA.com).
Therefore we have so many.
e.g.
IOD
name.space
new.net
and so on

But you have to look closely what you get for your money!
There are more than 200 ccTLDs available. Do you register in all? I would say now.

"it has no legitimacy."
Who in the world has a legitimacy to introduce TLDs? Everyone could do that.

Btw. in the UK they register Third Level Domains. Have a look at the actual .us domains too.
New.net offers fourth level domains, but for 71 mil users they look like second level domains.
