In writing up some problems as I see them with the proposed .mobi top 
level domain, I found i had half the document full of general reasons 
why new domains are a bad idea, which would apply to many if not all of 
the new proposals, and the other half specific problems with .mobi.

The writeup is at http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/TLD

Comments welcome -- I intend to send it to the formal comment list next 
This is a personal view only.  It is not a W3c view.  I would recommend 
that others also send their feelings to the official list.
