	I think the point some people are trying to make is that a person could
pony up the fees, get a new TLD, and then EXPECT ${FORTUNE_XXXX_COMPANY} to buy
theirname.NEWTLD . Instant market. Might even be able to make the investment back
the first year, and nice profit the subsequent ones just for companies keeping
their name protected.
