whatever you may think of ICANN, this concept is still fairly brain
For a land grab you only need those windows users with a plug in or on
ISPs that have bought in to it (could be lots of people), the others
without are part of your grab, you get them to hassle their ISP "why
can't we get to hot.xxx", some ISPs will add the new root, repeat until
owned or laughed off the net.
Failure to get critical mass is probably the main reason none of the
other alternate roots have grown. There's ICANN frustration, if
you deliver what people wanted from ICANN the public may adopt it.
