​Thanks for the comments, Eve.​

​Interesting your use of the word "trusted" .

I can't think of how an open gTLD (in which anyone could buy a subdomain)
would be more trustworthy than a brand with a reputation to protect and the
ability to play gatekeeper. But I could see the reverse.

Just something to think about.
