Well, one factor in the TLD world is that at least the gTLDs are
subject to ICANN policies.  So if the operations community is able to
convince ICANN that shunning is the best policy for the Net, then the
gTLDs may have to do this.  In the same way, if the operations
community is _not_ able to so convince ICANN, the gTLDs may not be
allowed to do this.  (As I've already said, I don't know what to
think about whether it's the right thing to do.  I think Paul Vixie's
"I hope it sounds irresponsible when I say it like that" presentation
of the arguments on both sides does a good job of outlining what a
Hobson's choice this is.)
