  "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,"
   Weinstein said."
