I don't mind the idea of an open floodgate for new TLD's. Good ones will rise to the top, bad ones will die, the artificial scarcity of domain names will vanish.

I hate the idea that anyone can own a TLD. This just recreates the .com domain name land rush and artificial scarcity on a new and more damaging level.

As far as protecting trademarks, perhaps allow trademark holders to block a TLD, but not own or control it. Either the TLD is there and open to all or Blocked and not allowed to be created.

Old programmers never die, they just branch to a new address.
