Resuming the "scarcity" thread, you have now proven my point. It is to the
(sole) registrar's benefit to keep as many desirable, generic names _out_
of the allocation pool as possible, and then auction them off to the
highest bidder sometime later when the target market has grown significantly.

They're in business to make a profit, not for the good of mankind. They'll
want to keep the profits.
