RE: [ga] gTLD Constituency
There is a technical collision in the name space.
Even though it is quite possible to have the same TLD in different
roots, there will be a nightmare for hosting companies who will have
no idea which is which, whether they already have a zone set up
for an identical domain name...
It also fragments the net irrevocably because you will then HAVE
TO choose one root over another and keep switching to see each
version of .BIZ. Now it doesn't matter which root you point to.
They all carry the USG root TLDs as well as their additional non-
colliding TLDs. If DoC enters a dupe, then there is no way to do
this any more. Roots will then have to choose which .BIZ to carry.
The name space is fractured, period.
In addition, how will it be determined who's domain name is the
legitimate one? (hint: both). So how do businesses market their
sites/names? Will the roots always carry the same version of the
DoC will introduce not only a collider, but will be instrumental in
wreaking havoc on the ISP industry as well as the TLD industry - all
because ICANN has decided these TLDs don't matter and the only
root is the DoC root. The precedent is set. The US government
can just take your business product if it chooses to not
acknowledge you. Great. This is maintaining the stability of the
