Are you familiar with plc.uk and ltd.uk?

I understand the UK decided to set them up with this notion of a
1:1 map of company names.  The funny thing is, most people seem to
prefer using co.uk, because it is what everybody else uses.  Perhaps
there is a lesson there for people wanting to introduce new gTLDs...

For stats on *.uk, see
	http://www.nominet.org.uk/news/stats/stats.2000.html
plc.uk+ltd.uk combined look like about 0.3% of co.uk.
