Subject: .NAME - I can't see speculators caring about it...

I think the whole point to making individuals register for .NAME through a 'firstname.lastname.name' system was to eliminate speculators from this domain name.  In my opinion this system all but kills speculation by this format.

The only possible speculation on .NAME I can see is 'famousperson1stname.famouspersonlastname.name'... but who really cares? Will dot-NAME fizzle because they have circumvented speculators?  Only time will tell, though I do think it will eventually catch on for its intended purpose for individuals... though .NAME is SUCH a bulky TLD.  .NOM would have been so much simpler & nicer...
