I am pretty confident that when the news of ".com" aliasing to ".คอม" in Thai is well publicized in the Thai media in Thai language, the 70 million Thai speakers will wake up.

Mulligan's Stats:

.com & .net figures for language (These are not totally accurate so allow ± 1% and some languages are not represented as they got swallowed up in other languages )

.com (May 2011 - 791,509)

1)Chinese / Kanji: 362,535 (45.80%)
2)Latin: 190,770 (24.10%)
3)Korean: 87,036 (10.99%)
4)Arabic / Persian etc: 40,817 (5.15%)
5)Cyrillic: 31,581 (3.99%)
6)Hirangana / Katakana: 30,904 (3.90%)
7)Hebrew: 18,885 (2.38%)
8)Thai: 15,500 (1.95%)
9)India: 5,289 (0.67%)
10)Greek: 2,851 (0.36%)
11) Misc: 5,341 (0.67%)
Yes, and Thai is not the only language that uses the script I believe.
