Chinese IDN.IDN has exactly the same problem.

.com can be either ".公司" ".商" or ".世界", or something totally random like ".可" ; with each of these choices, some will be happy, some will be pissed off.

Personally, I feel that a random meaningless character ".可" will be the best. But I suspect the decision will be otherwise.
Would .空 be better? Some other possibilities, .坑 .肯, .孔 :^)

My worry is .com, will it become .会社 as some people are saying?I wouldnt think so. .jp is obvious will become 。日本 .If you dont get it, .会社 is not a good name for many domains, specially for people with domains like ローン会社.com as they will get ローン会社。会社 which sounds terrible in japanese, ローン.会社 would sound very good in this case. The same with 音楽.会社 that literally reads music company, instead it would sound much better music.japan 音楽.日本? テレビ.会社 is another than sounds very different テレビ.日本 , テレビ。.net would sound very good for this one. .会社 is a real name, not a short version of com/mercial like .com Anyway im sure it is not going to be this way of using .会社 and people are just creating rumors on .会社

.net as .ネット ? any official? or at least very trustworthy information if there is nothing official about this.

If JPNIC decides to follow China's step, and hijack .会社, then the remaining alternative is .コム.
