Back in the day, pre-CIRA, .CA was managed according to rules which
included the restriction that a single company was only allowed one
domain name. So, to choose a company at random, General Motors Canada
was welcome to GMC.CA but they couldn't also register PONTIAC.CA or
GM.CA or GENERALMOTORS.CA.
I think that policy was good for the DNS, but it was apparently
widely hated by everybody else, despite the fact that .CA names at
that time were free. .CA is no longer managed according to such rules.
