Having some trouble with crossed emails ...

I answered this way:

There you go again, insisting an American speak English :o)

Simply, .gov.[xx] is a unique domain identifier, cyber-squatting is not allowed, and there is no such thing as "anonymous" Governance Policy (at least I hope not).  The same "rules" do not apply.

Technically, and unfortunately there is no way to demystify the math-heavy high tech, this opens up a number of imaging technologies (opportunity!!!) not available to **Private** Sector domains.

P.S. I looked at my server logs.  It took somebody from the US Navy "Post-Graduate School" (the Astronomy authority for the US) less than 5 minutes to download the spreadsheet (it's 10pm here). I imagine that it never occurred to them that the Sun has no idea what an "Hour" should look like.

When I said "imaging technologies" I meant like an x-ray of a broken leg ... the Doctor knows it's broken, because he knows it's a leg.  It's really a deep philosophical thing.  Nobody has ever "observed" a Midnight.
