And these questions are completely off-topic for this list. The
original question was "Is there a technical and ops-related reason to
limit the number of TLDs to the existing 250-300?" There are some
issues (as pointed in this discussion) but no hard limits. So, the
question of wether or not we SHOULD add TLDs is off-topic (the
question of wether or not we CAN add TLDs is on-topic).
