    Ben, Your research is getting just a bit too 'academic.' Who cares about all this? It's just a waste of a Research Grant. Mildly interesting, yes. Useful, no. No offence.

    It should help for ICANN to have such data when evaluating new gTLDs, and potential future gTLDs. It should also be of interest to the respective registries, registrars, and at least some registrants, particularily those speculating, squatting, and doing defensive registrations, or those considering the latter three. That covers a fair number of users of the domain name space. If they choose to ignore the research, as you are free to, it is their loss. -g

    There is very little in life that is necessary.

    Just because something is not necessary is not a reason to prohibit it.

    Arguments like this, that new TLDs are not necessary, are just the fodder that the existing registries use to ensure that they remain without competition.
