The real point, I think, is that by arbitrarily restricting the
set of TLDs, they're creating an artificial scarcity.Companies that wanted to
create and administer new TLDs had to pay a on-refundable $50,000 fee, and only
a few of theapplications were approved. This is ridiculous. What
exactlyis the argument against allowing the creation of dozens or hundreds
of new TLDs, other than to make sure that domainsremains scarce and expensive?
The .com TLD will probablyalways be prime real estate, but what's wrong with
lettingIBM have .ibm, Sun have .sun, and John Doe have .johndoe?
