If the current experiment adding new TLDs - .name, .biz, etc. - proves that additional
TLDs are not disruptive to the Internet, the ICANN will be positioned to issue 1,000s
of TLD every year for the next decade. With the issuance of those additional TLDs
guaranteed, granting a .com monopoly might be justified.
However, if the
current experiment fails, and additional TLDs prove to foster instability, then additional
limitations on the management of .com must be imposed.
