I really want the registrants representative body within ICANN to get rooted 
and take off.
It would seem probable that they will attack and try at every turn to limit the 
"floodgates" of new gTLDs.  I say this because most will be domainers, who are 
in the business and they will want to keep their commodity as scarce as they 
can.  OTOH back in the late '90s and early part of this decade the focus was on 
"gold rushes" and speculation in new markets.
Although a lot of those were converted ccTLDs - TV, WS, LA etc. 
I would prefer more competition. I would like to see ccTLDs actually market 
their names through their representative governance. I would also like to see 
new gTLDs and existing ones be required to include registrant representation 
and voting models within their bids.
