In the abstract, Web architecture is orthogonal to the
.com/.org/.net hierarchy, but in practice, I wonder
what the impact of this decision will be...


  Biggest Expansion to Internet in Forty Years Approved for
Implementation

  26 June 2008

  Paris, France: The Board of ICANN today approved a recommendation that
could see a whole range of new names introduced to the Internet's
addressing system.

I suppose that in the long-term, a more flat namespace
makes sense. And I suppose the proportion of domains
that come and go and break links in the web won't
be all that much different.


p.s. can anybody help me find the actual text of the decision/policy?
