It is obvious with around 250 ccTLD that the Internet would not crash.

Can you not see - Proof of Concept was just to slow the roll-out of new TLD?

I agree with some of what you say and disagree with some.

Quote: "Some people incorrectly think that ICANN is some sort of new world government and they will be the leaders of that government. They do not accept that ICANN will not be needed once Full-Scale Deployment takes place. The new TLD Communities will be quite capable of governing themselves. The Internet Architecture is counter to the notion of a single point of failure, like ICANN."

Who will remove ICANN from power - certainly not US DoC who are behind them.

You fool yourself, if you think they can be bybassed - or will allow the situation that will bring this about.

Incidently, Nameprotect.com is advertised on that link.

Trademark protectionism stops all businesses using their name on the Internet, giving some unfair dominance with advantage over others and makes those promoting it a lot of money.

WIPO and the legal profession would not be required for these problems if .reg was in place to put ownership of the domain beyond doubt.
