"Once you start to create very fine-grained TLDs you create a very
simple way for governments to enforce blocking and censorship on those
TLDs and [can] require that companies or particular types of
organizations operate out of particular TLDs. That's much harder to do
when you have a few general and generic ones like .com and .net,"
