I find Randys line of discussion mirroring my own thoughts.
And to answer your question above, technically, the TLD  org.  is a
member of the IN class, so in the OF class, it is credible to posit the
existence of  a org. TLD.   TLDs are per class... :)

Technically, yes. Would ICANN object?  Id be astonished if they did not.
Is there any practical value in an alternative class hierarchy?  No. So
its moot.

Actually there is practical value in an alternative classes if only
to make the type space effectively 32 bits and implicit with that
is a alternative class hierarchy (delegation may exist in one that
do not exist in the other and they may point to other servers).

Who owns a name is a different question to what machines serve the
<name,type,class> tuple and how do you reach those machines.  There
is absolutely no reason why the zones <name,IN> and <name,CLASS56>
need to be served by the same machines.  There is a argument for
them both being under control of the same people.
