Yeah, that'll last.
How much trouble do you think a porn site would go to to get WWW.HARD.CORE?

I thought so.
Also - is "being able to download the newest version of Netscape" a core 
service?  You don't think so (I hope), and I certainly don't think so, but 
Netscape may think so.  Microsoft, too. I'm being kinda cynical here, but
anything's possible.

and just have an internet cabal that decides on every domain registration!
Remember, the only reason most people don't like dictatorships is because they
aren't in charge...:)
