Wow.  Re-reading that paper now is like deja vu all over again!  Seems
like it was many decades ago....

I think, IIRC, I agreed with many points you made back then (and
especially the controversial ones like, avoidance of government (except
maybe the UN), closing .COM et al, the support of ISO country code
domains, etc.), and I'm almost certain that I fully agree with all of
them now.

Even though we sort of have shared-registry types of things happening
now I'm not so sure it would hurt to go back to one registry per gTLD.

The problem is that it all hinges on closing down .COM, et al....
