One of our student disability groups on campus is creating a new website, and they would like to use a top level domain URL. Their rationale is that a simpler URL could provide an accessibility boost due to its simplicity and brevity.

The university hostmaster is resisting this request in the name of keeping DNS simple.

Has anybody considered this before? Does it make any sense?
