AF writes "Bruce Young, in the second part of his examination of new TLD plans on CircleID,
entitled Examining Stuart
Lynn's Domain Name Plans - Part II says: "Corporations are saddled with a growing inventory of "white
elephant" domain names they really don't need but must pay to maintain,
while John Q. Public is stuck with easily forgotten domain names 10 to 20
[Young continues:] "This is not to say that we shouldn't have domains where trademarks hold sway. Certain domains, such as .COM and .BIZ, should be designated as 'commercial preserves' where companies and their customers can expect trademarks to predominate. But everything outside of these preserves should be open to 'first come, first served' ownership by anyone with the registration fee."
