.com is a brand. It is the most powerful brand on the internet. .com has served ICANN well too in my opinion. Having a dominant internet brand has been as useful as having a single internet. (which is the purpose of ICANN, to preserve the root). Anything that fragments .com weakens it and I think the owner of any valuable brand would fight against that.
ok, I was wondering if this could work/be done in the case of NS solution
