For the 99.99% of Internet users who have never registered a domain and 
never will, how does this market constraint affect them?

What benefits have consumers seen from .PRO, .TRAVEL, .AERO, and .JOBS? 
Be sure to keep in mind that, to several decimal places, no consumer has 
ever heard of them.  Or from .BIZ and .INFO, for which awareness is still 
low but probably distinguishable from zero?
