Just my 2c here, but I think that is a load of crock. Have you *seen*
the state of .com ?

Don't confuse the solution to mis-managed DNS space to completely opening
it up. All of a sudden a company will focus on selling as many domain names
as possible, and soon you end up with lawsuits over domain ownership,
domain name squatting..

I normally don't speak up about DNS issues, but you'd think that people
would learn from history..
