Some folks had reservations about the current definition of "split DNS":
    "Where a corporate network serves up partly or completely different 
DNS inside and outside
    its firewall. There are many possible variants on this; the basic 
point is that the
    correspondence between a given FQDN (fully qualified domain name) 
and a given IPv4 address
    is no longer universal and stable over long periods."
    (Quoted from <xref target="RFC2775"/>, Section 3.8)

What would the WG like for this definition?
