It is really surprising that China finally gets the Chinese characteristic domian name which is totally not in line with international convention.
The domaim of ".zhongguo" fully demonstrates that China has grown to be a siginificant participant into the world internet regulators.  
China's sphere of influence in the cyber world is much more remarkable.
as the number of chinese netizens is surging fastly , Will ".zhongguo" domain name become a donimating parts of internet world?

The China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) announced Wednesday that the top-level Chinese domain name ".zhongguo" (written in pinyin) has been approved by the board of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a nonprofit body that oversees Internet addresses, chinanews.com.cn reported.

Domain names with the suffix ".zhongguo" in both simplified and traditional Chinese characters are ready for use. People can now visit Shanghai World Expo's website expo2010.cn by inputting in Chinese shanghaishibohui.zhongguo (pinyin) into their web browsers.

More than 90 percent of Chinese ministries and provincial departments, more than 95 percent of news websites and more than 90 percent of China’s "211 Project" key universities have already opened their ".zhongguo" domain names, chinanews.com.cn said.

The application for the ".zhongguo" domain name was submitted by the CNNIC to the ICANN on Nov 16, 2009.

Without trying to sound like a China basher or naysayer; why should anything Chinese dominate the world. Some folks here have an oversized ego that needs feeding, and those who propose China should be dominant etc are amongst those folks.

The idea is short and easily remembered domain names.
zhongguo is not one of these.

I agree with Lebeast, .zg if you must.
