New gTLDs: a new indicator

(am not so sure about that one :-)
There are more entries in the latest new gTLD reports. From time to time, I discover that a new gTLD belongs to a report so I add it. For example, I added ".ACCOUNTANT and .ACCOUNTANTS to the Finance new gTLD report recently, as well as the dotBrand .PNC extension. I still wonder if .VENTURES should be added to the COMPANY new gTLD report as well as .DELOITTE to the LAW one.

I am pretty much excited by the "Singular VS Plural" new gTLDs report: a good indication on consumers' choice. Some plural versions of a TLD were launched before the singular version but some examples have clearly demonstrated that consumer preferred the singular version. Will it be the same when the plural version cost less than the singular version? Time will tell.
