Most people want to be able to get to the same server when they type the
same domain name from two different places.
Yes. That's how it's supposed to work. What exactly is your point here?
Um... actually it does. You must be reading the Cliff notes for either Kent
Crispin's "Complete Idiot's Guide to Alt.Roots", or Stuart Lynn's "The
Emperor's Dress Code."
Sorry this doesn't conform with the way you want things to work.
The bottom line is that expanding the name space with additional TLDs
solves this problem. Then "Two (or more) companies don't *HAVE* to fight
for identical flat space" - because they are each given unique space. Duh!
Holding onto an artificially constrained flat space makes things worse.
It's a really bad, bad, bad idea. Why would you even consider supporting
such a thing?
DNS is not a sacred cow that cannot be replaced by something better.
