I think I'll answer for city-TLDs and say they are a hybrid. They provide a platform for all city knowledge. Like math it's man discerning nature. And it facilitates peer production and cooperatives.
I've been engaged with local governance for 30 years, through a block association and then a community board. Now I spend my days advocating for the development of the .nyc TLD (like .com, .org, .uk and soon .london?) as part of the commons.
