Unfortunately, the concept is totally borked right here, mostly
because of the use of DNS as a yellow-pages.  Two companies that own
trademarks in different fields of business both have to register under
.COM (ok, so they *could* register under .US - hah), with the obvious
outcomes we've known to love and enjoy (Anybody remember who the
*original* owner of was?)

There's no way you can pile 23 million (or however many it is now) things
into one level of namespace and actually expect people to play nicely.
