It's mildly encouraging that the CEO for the company in charge of the top-level .asia domain is talking about more than "branding".

If the relative cultural isolation of some nations in Asia may serve to prevent an influence of less reputable trends in other cultures, then of those nations that do not execute a totalitarian cultural whitewashing on their populations, I can be glad for the broadening of their international presence.

As for such elements as the presiding government of China and the broader nation of North Korea, quite frankly, I can be glad if I'm not one of the folks compelled to address it. It's too heavy for my own range of heft. I'd be glad to leave my attention to someone prepared to address the issues.
