If this simply becomes a battle of greedy registrars - I agree with you on some being reviled.
For example, the gTLD .guitar has great potential beyond just applying for it to be a registrar. (applicant uniregistry.com
applied for this as well as quite a few generic names/terms
could host a wide and enthusiastic community. From vendors (i.e., fender.guitar, gibson.guitar, ibanez.guitar, etc..), to artists (i.e., andre.segovia.guitar, eric.claypton.guitar to unknown-listen-to-me-play.blues.guitar) right down to the average listener. If such a registrar has the technical know-how, is innovative (in multiple protocols) and aimed at growth of a community it can be exciting.
Time will tell.
