All of them with a requirement for global uniqueness will fail with

I don't understand what you mean. We come to the table saying: the
globally unique namespace of the Internet needs to recognize non-DNS
ways to resolve names, that are by technical design incompatible with
the delegation model of the DNS. The way to do that, according to
RFC6761, is to put these non-DNS TLDs into a registry that tells DNS to
always send NXDOMAIN to tell the systems: no, that does not resolve with

I think we have both. The technical aspect I just formulated. The
naming aspect so far boiled down to "Why X and not Y?", which indeed, is
not entirely technical (and the answer is: because it occurred like
that, and there's no name collision.)
