How do you educate the mom-and-pop ISPs and businesses? If I do this
now, they just walk two blocks away to the other guys, who will register
them. Changing the paradigm probably won't be possible until either
a technical issue of the impact of prefix-filtering and address allocation
restrictions forces the issue, or the namespace looks like alphabet soup
like you mention, and becomes almost a non-differentiated mass.
The Madison Avenue gang won't like a heirarchical product branding scheme,
which is probably how they look at domain names now.
