Time for the .co.uk to split up in geo TLDs?

The emblem of Wales.

Nominetthe handlers of the .uk top level domain which includes the popular .co.uk TLD– has approached the local government of Wales, seeking permission for a Welsh TLD application.

Should the motion be approved, Nominet will be financing the ICANN application – currently priced at $185,000 – in order to secure the Welsh TLD.

It is not clear if it will be an extended  code such as .welsh or .wales or a shorter version consisting of three letters.

Which brings us to the next question: would the .co.uk split, thus leading to .england, .scotland, .wales and .ireland or would the Old Albion geo TLD remain intact?
