Possibly interesting:

This kind of idea came up w/in ICANN when they were first considering
the idea of adding 1000+ new generic and internationalized TLDs. Will
it cause a melt down?

Money was allocated, studies and simulations were done, reports were

The conclusion was: Not likely a problem in terms of stress on the DNS
etc and that seems to have been correct even if there are other, more
social, complaints.

You could dig the studies up if you're interested, they should be on
the ICANN site.

But it's a reasonable approach to the question other than discovering
some structural flaw like we'll run out of IP addresses. Not likely
but just a "for instance" where we wouldn't need simulations to study.
