This is currently a mostly capex-less exercise. I agree, the load is on operations, and likely at ICANN, VeriSign, and the DoC.
We need way more detail than we have, but I hope all parties and the AC's move in a stewardship -and- commerce friendly direction with this. Even if it causes an evolution in the root -- which I believe it will.

possession and use of classV explosives is regulated in
but if you think that if we pack enough C4 into the DNS
and set it off, that we might find equalibrium, you might
be right. :) the result will still be a flat namespace,
(perhaps a crater where the namespace was).
one might legitimately argue that ICANN is in need of
some serious regulation....
that can happen at that national level or on the international
