There are about four billion people in Asia.  There are about 195,000 
domains in .ASIA.  Perhaps the .005% of people in Asia who have registered 
a domain (actually less than that, once you account for multiple 
registrations and parking) think it's swell, but for the other 99.995%, 
it's utterly irrelevant.

By comparison, there are over a million names in .JP and over 3 million in 
.CN.  There's over 200,000 in .HK, more than in all of .ASIA.
