Since ICANN doesn't contract to all TLD registries, nor do the root server 
operators control the CCTLD, there is no way to "fix" this from the top down. 
One can at best displace it from those top level domains ICANN does have 
contracts for to those that they don't.

Packets and digs can slow my networks. but other people's names can't hurt me.
