A major problem with nTLDs, including (and particularly) brand nTLDS,
is ICANN should have charged, and should going forward, millions for
them, not $185K+$25K/year.

And if any were deserving but not financially capable they could be
handled on a case by case basis. It's not like it's difficult to give
something away so let's not bog ourselves down in that.

I think $2.5M for a new gTLD and $5M for a brand TLD sounds pretty
reasonable, and $100K/$250K/year, maybe more.

To quote a recent note here it's not much for a Fortune 500 company.
