"As to which tld would get the keyword, we have more ip issues. And would someone with a tld have more claim over it than someone who did not have a matching tld, but had a site on the subject. Add TMs into the equation and you have an even greater mess than WIPO have caused already."

Keywords dispute the argument that new TLD's are needed.  After all, if keywords replace domains, then why have TLD's at all?  Why not get rid of every TLD?  I just showed why keywords will never replace TLD's.

"Who knows, maybe VR will catch up and you'll ask a virtual person/guide a question" to "give you a selection of alternatives."

That would be the best solution to the current IP disputes. For example, nissan.com could point to a list containing nissanmotors.com and nissancomputers.com among other disputing IP claims.

That would also be the best solution to the current attempts to grab the same domain in all TLDs.  Let keywords bring up a list of all websites containing that keyword in the separate TLDs.  For example, car would point to a list containing car.com, car.net, car.org, car.biz, car.info, etcetera.
