.Ford prevents use by individuals

Ford Motor Company has already undergone serious efforts to register the ford.__ domains in almost every nation globally, as well as plenty other "vanity" domains.

Ultimately, the addition of a .ford domain with one limited customer and no ability to have access to the tld outside of the corporation continues a string of negative consequences for people who may have their own vested interest in a ford domain, i.e. people with the name Ford.

Granting a tld that is unavailable for the public while prohibiting a potential valid use case (i.e. Jane.Ford or John.Ford) would be a net loss to the impartiality of the internet.
