I don't think there's any data showing a high degree of defensive registration in CO - which now has >900K domains
The registry has been extremely vigilant about limiting that, and the $20 price point has made it expensive
to squat (if the PPC value of the traffic the squatter gets is less than $20 per year it's a money losing proposition
for them - and very few new domains have >$20 in PPC value per year).
The data I've seen, and it's not a complete analysis of the zone, shows about the same level of squatting in CO as you see in
BIZ and INFO - which is minimal
