        So here's a ccTLD acting like a gTLD.

The minimum bid to own a basic .tv domain will cost you $1,000 per year.

If you wanted something catchy, like "cartoons", you'll have to spend $250,000 per year!

Something is wrong here! 

An argument for new gTLDs is old fashioned competition!  If it's going to cost this much to have a new domain name, you've completely changed the nature of the internet: the convenient, usable domains will be controlled by the "haves" with deep pockets and big bankrolls.
