We need to understand the dynamic of new gTLDs. Like here in Brazil ( and certainly in several countries) banks registered their name for their own security reasons, not to sell; other names has no reason to exist because has no meaning. But some of them are quite good and are selling well. 
Of course IDNs generic names are quite relevant for people around the world to keep in touch with their culture. 
I believe this round of TLDs was a learning experience not only for ICANN but also for all applicants to think better about the potential market before they decide to apply to own a new gTLD, since the general cost to launch it properly is around 1 million US$ if you are not yet a registry. 
I am not in favor to have another round of gTLDs. It is a long process and users need to understand better the advantages, risks etc. 
My 2 cents
 Great holidays to you all!!
