These are much less speculative than IDNs.

Re: POOL Now Taking Pre-Orders For 59 New gTLD Extensions

Again and again, ASCII guys go off the deep end with this stuff.

I think some Fortune 500 companies are going to jump and grab a gtld.

IBM for sure.
how they will use it....who knows.

NYC is going forward with dot NYC.
If they are smart they will promote the hell out of it.

but dot XXX is not likely to happen..

95% of entrepreneurial gTLD's will be repeats of dot Mobi ...

Here is what a group of IP lawyers submitted to ICANN:

*****************
Applicants should be permitted to apply for more than one string in an application, (e.g.
.BRAND in ASCII, Korean, Kanji, Arabic etc.) if those other strings are IDN/ASCII
equivalents of the base application (and ICANN shall only charge the additional cost
recovery fees associated with the string evaluation and not a separate $186,000
application fee for each string);


**************************
and

The holder of a second level domain name in existing gTLDs should have priority in
respect of IDN equivalent;

*******************************


So the IP lawyers are supporting the NetChoice framework..
