They are NOT meaningless, even if the intention
for each is not being met. Quite simply, .com means "commerce," .net means "Company
Network" and .org means "Organization."
Your .mcx or whatever TRULY does mean

Yes, yes, but there is not always
a river at hand. And even still, there central locale designated more for business,
and well. . .people don't live there as much. . . and, well. . . Oh, hell! This has
nothing to do with the topic, anyway.
Next we'll be talking existentialism. (Fine
by me, actually.)
Of course they are. .banc is for established
financial institutions, and .unions is for. . . well, UNIONS. That is specialization.
WHICH YOU REPLIED:
And what is inherently wrong with that? I have never seen any
good arguments given against it, either for technical or other reasons.

Um, there is nothing wrong with strong specialization
in a TLD charter, so long as the TLD is restricted. Then the registrants would have
to be members of a respective institution, and the approval process is different
than it is for unrestricted TLDs.
Strong specialization in unrestricted TLDs only
(Damn, that IS a word. Obscuration.com. Hmmmm. . . It's
available! See! We DON'T need new TLDs!)
