So assuming you get rid of tasting and reduce the flow of new names to say 50,000 per day  exactly how are you going to preview these in any meaningful sort of way? Are you going to do the same for every ccTLD as well? What about domains with constantly changing subdomains? Everything hosted in different countries with different languages, policies and privacy laws? Believe it or not, some countries don't even have "states" or 5 digit zip codes. Please detail exactly what you will do if I register "trademe.ir" using a Pakistani Registrar, a .ly contact email, a physical address in Nigeria, the name "Tarek Rasshid"  , $10/year name servers in Cuba and pay for using Visa gift credit card bought in Malaysia.  20 million new domains each year, just 20% growth on what we have now.  http://www.angelfire.com/tx/afira/arabic1.html -- Simon J.
