Great idea - how to wreck the world-wide DNS in one easy step: allow
commercialization of all the root level domains so that Turkmenistan, Norfolk
Island, and the Federal States of Micronesia can all bid for the honour of
hosting your domain so that a newcomer who has never seen the Internet has no
chance of working out where your site is inside a week, and _never_ has any
chance of understanding how the DNS is structured.

Sorry, but i work with DNS all day and i just hate seeing the Internet wrecked
like this.
