Okay, so when every foo.com. applies to become a foo., how will you
control the growth?
1/ no trademarks allowed
2/ competitive rebidding every two years
3/ mandatory open downstream registrations (no exclusions)
4/ high entry fees
IMHO, the only solution to this problem is the elimination of gTLDs
There isn't enough demand to support more than a few dozen popular TLDs.
Generic TLDs are user-driven, with the market deciding which ones they
want to use. Geographic TLDs are completely arbitrary and favor the
functionary instead of the user.
