I think that system administrators should be aware that many more TLDs than the best known ones exist, including TLDs in non-ASCII characters, and even more will be introduced, and should support and accept all of them except if they think they have reasons to blacklist specific TLDs due to non-technical issues. So, what we could advocate is: make sure you accept any TLD (and any domain name) by default, but feel free to blacklist those that you consider harmful.
This would IMHO be an acceptable stance that does not enter into thorny content-related issues (because it does not tell anyone what to blacklist and when) but still promotes universal acceptance.
