Subject: Will the average Joe understand that there are several protocols?


        I think he won't.
And therefore I don't like the idea of adding new protocols like
ahttp to the existing ones.

But I think it would be pretty easy to have the main root point to
the alternate roots (as works vice-versa). I don't think anyone cares
(except ICANN, Neulevel and some greedy trademark attorneys), who is
running dot biz, as long as it is NOT duplicated.

That's the whole point. And with 1000 gtlds you can forget about
trademark infringement, talking about addresses anyway.

The reason why that number of gtlds may never be introduced is, that
the existing companies would loose a marketing tool they just

So, when ICANN and their supporters talk about "stability", they
mean "income" and that easily explains their behaviour.

Again, just my personal opinion ...
