Domain name policies have limited the ability of users to locate information
using generic and geographic names through the use of URLs based on words
and names of places, which are easily remembered, intuitive, meaningful,
well known or easily recognisable.

The Internet is there to serve the interest of its users.

Enabling users _choice_ is surely what its about.

If users want to use the DNS as a directory service _and_ businesses want to
fund such ventures, why shouldn't they?
