The .com TLD already means controlling a domain offers little
assurance of behavior when millions are added daily at virtually no

There might be a desire to introduce ACE TLDs thereby permitting
users to stay within their native language. Should there be
replications of translated TLDs into various languages, or should
these "internationalized" TLDs be fully independent of their ASCII
counterparts? Internationalization might have a significant impact
on the number of TLDs, and would be hard to stop.
