"If you give me exclusive control of this resource, I promise to share it with you. The bad guys might not."

if one were to become registrar for the ".book" TLD, wouldn't that mean they need to become registrar for ".livre" (for French), ".libro" (for Spanish), ".livro" (Potuguese), ".buch" (German), ".bok" (Swedish), ".kitab" (Azerbaijani)...
