The only possible thing that could save anyone with a valuable
meatspace (tm) from having to buy its string representation in all the
new TLDen is to make TLDen ubiquitous to a degree where the TLD can't
be assumed anymore. 

A root zone with several thousand TLDen is no technical problem. I
wonder when the effect kicks in. If it does.

A positive side-effect would be to enable the altroot kooks to buy a
TLD (.altroot -- under which they can run their own mini-Internets) of
their own, which would disable some, if not all of them.
