... without speculators (reportedly responsible for at least 30% of new domain sales), I envision financial troubles for the registry, considering that speculators are also a large factor in "getting the word out", for any new TLD.  Without speculators, the registry might be on its own, as far as marketing.  The at-large public might learn about .INFO and .BIZ within a few months to a couple of years, due in large part to speculators, whose dollars fuel registry marketing campaigns.
On the other hand, without speculators, .NAME may take years to become widely known.
