        DNS is setup as a tree, but it just as easy could be a shrub.  Or maybe a tree made up of alphabetical shrubs.  DNS is a good thing, TLDs are good things, but artifically making TLDs rare and then selling exclusive contracts (i.e. monopolies) to sell domains in them is just wrong.

All a DNS name is supposed to be is an address.  Just that.  Not a business plan, not a monopoly, just an address.  It just converts names to IPs.  Kinda like street addresses would convert lat/long to names, but you don't see people scrambling for the right to sell addresses that end in 'main street'.
