That sounds like a solution, not a motivation. That is, you care about the 
problem hypothetically, and have a hypothetical solution. In practice when 
we’ve talked about using dns classes to solve problems that have motivated 
rfc6761 allocations, it hasn’t really helped, because the infrastructure 
required to use them this way is not present, and this isn’t how they were 
originally intended to be used.

For example, is with a different class not a subdomain of the .org 
TLD? Would ICANN not object to us designating it for use by someone else?  I 
suspect yes, and I wouldn’t blame them.
