Re: ICANN announcement of unlimited new GTLDS (185k application fee)
I've thought this kind of move was inevitable for quite a few years. I can see the potential for confusion, but the fact is there is nothing technical that precludes this from happening. Logistically, as the number of TLDs grow, the demand on the root servers grows, which will require greater hardware provisioning. This is at least part of the large price tag for these.
