Not really, because what you get by squatting on a TLD is nothing like
what you get if you rent it from ICANN.  Squats are all local
(mis-)use, with names only leaking onto the public Internet by
accident. 

It also seems implicit in this document that the plan is only to add
names to the registry if there is existing evidence that they're
significantly squatted, by which time it's too late anyway.

R's,
