Getting angry over domain names

The world is running out of IP addresses, but a greater concern for me as an average user is the lack of domain names that are available. The thing that angers me is not the fact that most domain names that are actual words composed of 6 letters or less are already taken, but the fact a lot of those domains aren’t linked to actual web sites that are relevant to that domain name. I am actually sympathetic to those people who buy domains so that they can sell them to others; at least they are making the domains available. But domains that direct you to weird “directory-like” sites are the ones that are frustrating. Would it be wrong to regulate domain names so that they are only linked to “proper” websites?
