Good point, Chris.  But just because the web is an international machine of 
mystery doesn't negate the benefits of having a google.nasa site AND a 
google.esa site (the latter the Euro Space Agency) - there would be a plethora 
of new TLD's in this scenario - in the hundreds...and all for great measure!

IMO :o)

Federalised would be nice, except the web is international. A better start would 
be forcing the use of .us for ALL US domains to level the playing field to the 
standard as written.

On a federalized web, I could go to sirius.fcc, bp.epa, caltech.hhs,

record activity, that company's volume of legal data, and this company's public 
financial statements, and vice versa, while each company's marketing efforts I 
don't have to worry about, because I'm not at .com, I'm on the federal web!
