Hmm. What do you think of my domain name? I wanted "ni.com" (would have
made a nice Monty Python reference too), but some imaging company already
snagged it, and neither "natural" nor "innovations" has any well-known
abbreviation (natl = national). So, some are long simply because the short
ones have already been taken! Latecomer? The entire world can't sign up on
the first day of IANA, and many companies have not yet been born!
