but how many browsers come across brandname.net and decide not to go there
because they understand that brandname.net is just an ISP or other "network
related" activity and not a commercial enterprise which would only ever be
registered in .com?

and, while we're at it, how many businesses which have a .com registration
will not try to register in .web if that became available to identify
someone offering products or services over/via the internet ?
