Fair enough, as new domains
are created, it makes perfect sense to try to legitimise and organise the TLDs
as much as is humanly possible, but the mix of different sites using all the
three main currently available TLDs is too well established to warrant a
root and branch reform of them. It's time for ICANN to accept that whatever
the advantages towards rationalising the system, the cost to the individual or
collective creative presence (both in terms of set-up fees and reregistrations,
plus the loss of identity / branding / reknown and the absence of suitable domain
alternatives either due to heavy TLD colonisation on .net & .com) on the
web is too great to bear.
And that's ignoring the impact this could have on search
directories, and the degradation of the quality of hyperlinks across the
whole internet. The idea is disasterous.
