The issue is home gateway vendors who want to sell a $49 home gateway that “just works”, out of the box, without the customer having to go though some confusing registration process (that also costs them $10/year, say) to use that home gateway product in their own home. Such products ship today with “.home” hard-coded into them, and all our pontificating about registration processes is not going to change that.
