I'm not sure China has proven themselves to be the shinning beacon of the free trade of information. Maybe Switzerland or The Netherlands or Denmark
might be a better choice.
Perhaps the best solution is to just decentralize the DNS system and enact the web of trust. Anyone can setup a TLD that joins the worlds TLD network
and is filtered down to clients through a peer to peer system. Essentially you take the existing infrastructure to build the database, and client
requests dns info from 3 clients in the peer group. Using an automated point system, any TLD server spitting out results which are unlike the other 2
will find itself demoted and banned from the network within minutes. New domain registrations would have to take place within the decentralized
network, which would do away with domain for profit schemes as well. The domain owner could set a password within the registrar network to allow
updating of his ownership yearly with all domains set to auto expire 1 year and 30 days after registration or updating.
Initially it would have to endure the obvious hacker attacks of trying to hijack the TLD network or brute force trust rankings to take ownership of a
domain, but its not the worst idea ever. The secure site certificate system could not require any changes since the certificate is either going to
check out or not regardless of the ip the domain sends you to, so it wouldn't harm banking or commerce. I don't foresee the added overhead having a
significant impact on the worlds internet traffic since bit torrent and movie/video sharing sites are now accounting for a massive percentage (>50) of
all internet bandwidth usage.
Its just a thought...
