Every domain name has a public interest aspect, just like every trademark
does, that members of the public not be deceived, but admittedly, some
domains have almost no public interest concern while others are
overwhelmingly of a public interest.

We appear to differ then on whether absent resolution by, or non-resolution
to (as there are marks which are registered as domains for which no
resolution is sought by the registrant), any public, a public interest

If this is the case, would it be fair to characterize your view as being
that every string generated under the old letters-digits-hyphen rule, or the
two (newer and newest) valid IDN characters rule, having length less than 63
octets, is of equal public interest upon the act of registration?

If so, is this public-interest-upon-registration present in all

Can symbolics.com be distinguished from any of the registrations made while
you read this? Can panix.com?
