I did, back on Sept 18th.  Here it is again, slightly tweaked.  I realize 
that you don't like either of these, but at this point, so what?  Neither 
your draft nor the other one is getting traction, so evidently neither of 
them describe the problem that the group thinks we should solve.


... we'd be better off with a one or two sentence description of
what we're trying to do, perhaps along these lines:

   * Describe how and when to recognize domain names that are handled
   in ways other than the DNS.  (That's mDNS and .onion)

or

   * Describe how and when to recognize domain names that should not
   be delegated in the DNS. (That's mDNS and .onion plus the toxic waste.)

or maybe something else, so long as it's short.

R's,
John
