Notice that you don't get the lower prices and cartel breaking by increasing
the number of domains, you get it by increasing the number of registrars.
I disagree. The current arrangement of increasing registrars looks alot
like a multi level marketing scam. Basically the goal is to squeeze every
penny out of the dot.com universe. It' don't wash.
Users want *.choice in their tlds. The whole idea behind tlds are to
establish simple nameing conventions which give users of domains
an internet precense. unfortunately there's not much choice in the
existing USG root infrastructure. Users are by their nature creative when
it comes to naming concervtions and i'm sure they would have more fun in
the alt.universes then they do in the USG system. Unfortunately the USG
is not very creative in this regard.
