With currently falling revenues and rising costs due to inflation, ICANN
is under pressure to create more revenue streams and a quick fix is to
go for another new gTLD round.
As for "fixing" TLDs that are already available, ICANN not being a
regulator, it is argued that it is not in its mandate to fix anything,
except if the new gTLDs endanger the actual technical stability of the
DNS, which we've seen is not the case.
Kindest regards,
