.. go take a look at one of the flat domain spaces. Say, .nl.
At least in .nl you require a business registration *most* times
to get a domain name. And its still getting rather crowded.

Again, the problem here isn't, its with who is running
Perhaps that requires fixing?

Now, just on a side note - before you go down the "multiple registrar!"
run, I suggest you look at whats happening now with the .com/.net/.org
registrar spree. Not only are there a large number of registrars to
choose from, but anyone with legacy domains registered with NSI has
*GREAT* pains trying to redelegate host templates and shift stuff
across to a new registrar. And from other mailing list traffic, it seems
host templates don't propagate between registrars.

(Proof that this is a good business practice is left as an exercise
to the reader. :-)
