There is also a use of .id by Blockstack? as opposed to the ccTLD for Indonesia.  (This one just jumps to mind.)

I did some looking and despite thinking there was once a backlog of a dozen, I haven't come across it in the mailing list.  (I could be wrong.)  What about .belkin, often cited as a string seen but not allocated?

My goal is to see the problem statement document get more detailed so we can know when we've solved the problem.  ("The problem" is meant to be general, not necessarily the problem at hand.)

>All of the drafts besides those for .onion, .alt, and .homenet have expired, which tells us nothing about whether or how they might come back.

I don't think liveness of drafts is a sufficient measure of activity, considering the problem statement talks about uses from folks not engaging in the IETF process.  (If I'm hungry and in line at a restaurant, then walk away because the wait is too long, I'm still hungry.)
