That's exactly what I was trying to get at in writing my patent application - a 
user agent - web browser - that navigated the new federal TLD space which would 
extract statistical data and transform it into audio-visual displays about 
wherever the user was navigating on the traditional web.

Thanks!   If such a User Agent were ever to emerge, I think the relevance of the 
URI would diminish greatly, whereas the user will eventually just have to type 
"Microsoft" rather having to type "www.Microsoft.com" or such.

Mr. Waites,

That was in reference to an email I sent (twice) to the eGov list but never got 
published which is this:
