Just my view, but I'd say that mid xx,xxx is a very good offer for this domain..
If you could use the money, I would capitalise now.
If the laws on domain names change (as they can sometimes) you may find yourself subject to a claim from a copyright owner. You're safe at the moment with such a generic, but who can say how the laws will change?
There's also a chance that the whole domain name system may become obsoleted (somehow) or totally fragmented (eg the creation of many many more top-level-domains) before you get a better offer.
I had a generic short-one-worder and was happy with £10,000 a few years years ago. Sure, I could have held on for a better offer, but I got a nice kitchen out of it, and bought THESAMENAME-uk.co.uk for 6 quid ... nearly as good
A lot of domainers seem to be holding onto their domains for some magic time in the future when they will be worth ten times more than they are now. There are doubts in my mind that we'll ever get there
And, humans being largely human, will always have wanted a little bit more than they got, however much that was...
