I can't help think the whole concept was a big mistake in the beginning.
My own private Internet: .secure TLD floated as bad-guy-free zone (Ars Technica)

If you open up one TLD after another, people will feel compelled to register their name or whatever in each new TLD that comes along.
The only solution is to open up the namespace to ALL possible TLDs from 3 characters (those not already assigned) up to a certain length (maybe 20). Make it so nobody can own a TLD, but everybody can register any second-level Domain under any possible TLD.
This way, the namespace is much too big that anybody can register all of its trademarks or names or whatever under all of the possible TLDs, hell, not even all likely domains under all probable TLDs. www.cocacola? www.coke? www.coke-light? www.cola-zero? cola.zero? cola.light? coca.cola? And so on.
