    Will TLDs Ever be Measured by Value and Not Size ?

    Will TLDs Ever be Measured by Value and Not Size ?

    Clearly the size of .DE was not viewed as
    important in the recent .NET contest. With
    an artificial scarcity, it hardly seems useful
    to value size. One has to wonder how many names
    would be registered in .PARIS or .FRANCE or .TOUR (which is French for .TRAVEL).

    With .FR now moving under .EU with .FR.EU one
    also has to wonder how many names will remain.

    .FR traded for .FRE, .FRA, .FREE and 06 Draft Pick

    In the deal made with the ITU and the EU,
    the .FR TLD is being traded for the 3-letter
    ISO code and some lucrative TLDs.
