What criteria? Not practical. If it's what I think you mean you have
to remember what happened with .net .org etc. This is unworkable
and will only create a worse situation. Giving people
the impression that (if this is what you mean) .medical
is always a Doctor etc. for example. Whatever system you set up
will be circumvented and it will create more harm thn good.
You might as well have a free for all with this.
