gentlemen from France starts a ecommerce business Nice.web (NOT to be confused with
Nice.net or Nice.com or Nice.TV---you get my point) after a successful year he hires
25 people, the business grows and he opens up shop in England and the US and hires,
Apart from the fact that nice.web could be confused with nice.whatever,
the mere existence of a new name in a new domain won't create any economic activity
(except for registrars). If the Nice gentleman has products or services he will presumably
be out there selling them in some fashion even if it's a tripod address or thru ebay.
If he waits for a name he will more likely fail in his endeavors, seems to me.

This idea that if one only had
the right .web name entered into the root they could be a success is one that has
always struck me as backwards. One has a product or service, one markets it through
available channels, if new channels appear one looks into using them. Not, one waits
for a new channel which may never appear so as to offer a product or service. This
has always been true and is even more true with the frenzied pace of the internet.
Your example is a good one. There are at least 25 sLDs including the string killerweb
registered in gTLDs and ccTLDs. How many of those have been registered while you've
been waiting (or do you own one or more of them?). You don't unfortunately seem to
own killerweb.com which appears to already be fairly well branded.
Please do not
construe my comments as not wishing you every success in your endeavors.
