Subject: It's not clever to duplicate gtlds officially.


        But you can call someone from the U.S. (using your U.S.
telephone system, even if he is living in a country with a different
telephone system (call it alternate telephone system) without
changing the settings of your telephone.

That IS a difference.

With two exactly similar telephone numbers (including the same
country and area telephone code) you wouldn't know anymore
whom you reach. No one did anything like that before.

The fact that it is happening in the internet shows somewhat ICANNs
ignorance or better their unwillingness to behave correctly.

ICANN may not include the alternate roots into their main root, but
they should grant access from the main root to the alternate ones (as
currently happens vice-versa).

... and certainly they should not duplicate gtlds: ICANN is giving
the worst possible example to people who consider duplicating gtlds.
