You guess it right.
But I don't think the word "enthusiast" is appropriate...
We are just conscious that new TLDs, and a new DNS management are a

.AU is a TLD, isn't it ?
As I'm not Australian, I'm not "interested" in .AU management. I just
wanted to help with a "foreign" point of view.
What does "foreign" means, on the Internet ?

We observe similar issues with all ccTLDs : should they be organized as
a flat name space, or a structured one ? Who should manage them ? What
should be the name registration fees, if any ? Where should the fees go
What should be the conditions to register a name : own a trademark, be
legally registered under the same name ?

And probably the most important question : what should be the relations
between TLDs registries ?

It seems national postal services want to take over ccTLDs in a growing
number of countries : USA, Canada, Norway, France, etc, and manage them
like the .US zone.
Shouldn't they at least let a flat space exist, beside a structured one
