Sure, but the top five handle about 90% of the new TLDs.  

I saved a lot of time by writing scripts that did string compares to
see if the applicants had correctly copied and pasted the form
responses from the large backends. But it would have made a lot more
sense if I could have said that RSP is known to be OK so we can skip
the parts they handle and only do the ones specific to each applicant.
