I disagree with this comment, we need to fix what’s broken and move on.

How about in 20 years? would it be the same? I don’t think so.

My daughter who is 3 years old will not know the difference between
a .COM and a .LINK name, I believe it is a generational issue. 

Remember that when you mention a “smaller group of people” also include
the of new TLDs that are IDNs, which now enables people to type URLs in 
their native languages.. The Internet needs to evolve to be more inclusive
and new TLDs are just a part of that.
