Prices, competition and the market

Prices, competition and the market

In the midst of the current debate about competition and pricing, and
expectations of high demand for domain names, let me pose a question:

Were the cost of registering a business name to be reduced, would there be a
sudden surge in the number of businesses being registered?   If there were
several agents selling business name registrations on behalf of the State,
would consumers rush out to create businesses?

And if somebody were to come up with a new type of business registration
(say FC for Family Corporation as an alternative to Pty Ltd), would there be
a land rush in such business registrations?  Would those with Pty Ltd
registrations take up FCs as well?

My point (yet again) is that domain names per se are utterly irrelevant to
average consumers - there has to be other, much more fundamental business or
personal needs before a domain name becomes an issue.
