I tend to agree here. Looking to the future in a world :-
 1 The basic namespace will effectively never be exhausted
 2 server requirements (I/O and Net bandwidth) will increase forever.

Technological advances are expected to reduce point 2 to a matter of $$ only.

I think the domain is "too large" when the number of transactions
(i.e. registrations and delegations) exceeds the capability of the DA
to do the work. That was the case prior to November 1st and is no longer
so (irrespective whatever charging policy is in use).

This is really a proposal for diversification and competition.
