[DNS] Domain dispute heats up

Not to mention China (.cn), Taiwan (.tw), Hong Kong (.hk), Singapore (.sg),
Vietnam (.vn), India (.in), Pakistan (.pk), Korea (.kr), Ukraine (.ua) who
have all opened up registrations in the second level in the last 3-4 years
(and that's just off the top of my head - there's probably a few others
as well).

Can anyone see a theme developing here...?
