Aside from collisions between subdomains, are there any other reasons this would be a silly idea?
It would break all the low quality domain validation scripts which expect UK domains to have one of the standard second level domains
It would cause another race-for-my-brand mess
It would make us more like the French ;)

""" Hunt, in an interview with the Financial Times today, said the BBC was "out of touch" with what licence fee payers wanted and was damaging commercial competitors in the media. """
How is the BBC damaging commercial competitors if it isn't giving license fee payers what they want?
Surely, if they can't get what they want from the BBC, they will go to a commercial alternative?
And if the commercial alternative doesn't provide them with what they want, then that is just an example of how a free market allows a company to fail?
