 After an initial "that's too cutesy" reaction, I'm becoming more convinced
that John's suggestion ("policy super domain") might indeed be the right
sort of solution - along with clearly citing 7489 in the intro and abstract
("If you don't know what DMARC is, go read RFC 7489 before coming back
here." or similar).
