I am not aware of a .webb TLD - so .web is not 'confusingly similar' to any other current gTLD - is it?

There are around 200 ccTLD and gTLD in the world.

What sort of world would it be if we only had two hundred or so towns - each allowed only one High Street (Americans may call it Main Street)?

There are thousands of High Streets in the UK - but only one HighStreet.co.uk.

This mess is entirely due to mismanagement of the Internet by ICANN and the US DoC.
