Blocking Similar names

One of the problems with top level domain names is that others may register your same domain name under a different top level domain.  Many companies combat this by registering their name under all top level domains, such as .COM and .NET.   This problem will grow as additional top level domains are introduced.
I suggest adding the ability to BLOCK or ALIAS domains at the top level for a smaller fee.  Using Coke as an example.
Register COKE.COM for the standard $35 annual fee
Add an alias(or)block for COKE.[anything] for a $15 upcharge
My previous post suggest eliminating top level domains entirely, but in the event that's not possible, this solution is viable as it only affects the top level name database, and would centralize processing and handling while reducing costs for customers who need to protect their trademarks.
