Ok, it's not April 1st, which means... this is sheer madness!

Everything is already covered by .com .net and .org

Apart from my belief that and should be set
up and used for all future US domains, the idea of adding in these domains
is ludicrous.

I simply cannot believe that ISOC would support this. We can't the yanks
follow their own two letter code system is beyong me.
