The value of the namespace arises from both being simple and
logical. It is very hard to see how a 2LD can be justified
to support the wishes of the 5 real banks, and ~20 wannabe banks,
or broking houses, or insurance houses, who like to think they
are bank like.
25 entries is not likely to stress the .co.nz namespace (which is
surely the only reason for considering another 2LD.) In the mind
of the applicant, why would banks be (at internet level) any more or
less special than any other commercial entity. Sure this would lead
to .legal.nz, .treaty.nz, and a variety of other groups who for
whatever (spurious?) reason somehow think they are "special".
I propose to make a submission against .bank.

Given that the vast majority of registrants are in
anyway - the last number I saw was around 95%, I really find
it hard to see what value the structure has anyway.
