Why is .gov only for US government agencies?

Instead of multiple govs trying to use .gov or .mil, the best idea would be
to collapse .gov under .gov.us and .mil under .mil.us (Much like how other
countries already work).

I don't see that happening as long as the US gov has a say in the matter.
I think .su will be decommissioned long before .gov or .mil are.
