I still don’t see why we need a TLD, or a delegation/reservation under ARPA.

There are many, many TLDs under which an application/protocol implementer can reserve some namespace for their exclusive use at low cost ($10/year, say). Why is this approach not preferred for a new application/protocol? It seems far simpler.

Perhaps all that is missing is some guidance that says “you shouldn’t hijack namespaces that you don’t control, even for non-DNS applications; register a domain instead”.
