why ? gTLDs are cool ...

The only logic in you sentence is probably in the reverse ... there  
is little or no use for a solely American company to have a .au  
domain. But that only holds true where the 2 letters aren't funky  
like .tv

In short, I think Geoff Huston coined the phrase on a related mailing  
list many years ago "the dns is not a directory tool".

For me its just just letters and dots, which makes more logical sense  
than using numbers and dots.
