The problem with any such mechanisms is that the barrier of entry for  
new players (that does not match the currently used list -- including  
non-upgraded software) is increased. More than what people think.

When we added TLDs with more characters than three, we had problems.  
Now we will with lists like these have similar problems again.  
Specifically as we are on the edge of getting new TLDs etc etc (IDN  
related issues, if nothing else).

This is already described in RFC 3696, Section 2.
