One thing to keep in mind is that not all of .com is broken;
major country and world wide companies should sensibly have
a short address, we just need an adaptive mechanism to allow
more local companies to come along without losing all usability
within the existing .com structure...

I wouldn't have bothered to bring this up, but someone mentioned
using an intermediate hash on *all* .com's (, which is a
waste of time.  Every extra level of address hurts a bit, and it makes
sense that "really big" companies should have simple .com addresses.

We don't have to retrofit the new mechanism to everyone for consistency's
