that's a good question.  marka mentioned writing an RFC, but i expect
that ICANN could also have an impact on this by having applicants sign
something that says "i know that my single-label top level domain name
will not be directly usable the way normal domain names are and i intend
to use it only to register subdomain names which will work normally."
