I think Marc's point highlights the real issue here ...the need for a mechanism
to protect IGO and country names (where appropriate) in every existing (and
future) TLD ...not to create new space.

Your line of thinking I do like. But in my view new sTLDs are not
needed. For IGOs there is already .int (as in wipo.int). And
countries have their ccTLDs.
I do like the idea, that having your own space (TLD), means your are
not entitled to the rest of the name space.
