Subject: Fred? Shmed! .museum IS logical for museums



      .museum is FINE for museums.... and fundamental classification
heuristic systems tend to support this: the larger and less specific
the category, the shorter the "classifier", and vice versa. So, for a
narrow, specific class such as museums, a relatively long suffix is
acceptable, whereas for a very large category, eg businesses in
general, the shorter the suffix the better (eg: .biz). {Somewhat
similar to the concept of coding using fewer bits for more common
occurrences, more bits for less common, etc, etc}
