Subject: gTLDs and Language


        I support the creation of 6-10 new gTLDs.  Assuming they succeed, I also support additional gTLDs on an ongoing basis.

If people are concerned about new gTLDs being English-centric, please consider that .com,  .web,  .biz  (etc.) almost become symbolic and lose their English-centric characteristics.  People adapt: without even trying to make it happen, the word (or is it a symbol?)  "OK" (okay) is the most prevalent word on the planet.

Without additional gTLDs, people are forced to create .com domain name aberrations that hardly resemble any language!  Is that what we want to encourage and create?
