Before doing so, remember that the ITU did try an "experiment", named
Net4d, in the hope to get an hold on other classes, leaving ICANN/USG
only with IN. AFAIK, it produced nothing (no surprise for an ITU

It was in 2009 and was hosted here (now down):
<http://net4d.org/>. Because of ITU backing, it has some success in
the press (see, in french,
"ICANN's 65 0000 competitors") For those who read french, my analysis of Net4D
is still there <http://www.bortzmeyer.org/net4d.html> Two criticisms
in english are

This particular test does not seem very interesting: I have no doubt
the DNS servers will work with classes, the issue is with applications!

And it's fun :-)
