This new internet-draft is another request for additions to the RFC 6761 special names registry, this time motivated by an interest in reserving the names most commonly found in recent analysis of TLDs in private name spaces. The special names registration would serve to minimize the chances of collision between private and public DNS namespaces by keeping these names unassigned in the public namespace.

In addition to discussion on the merits of this specific request, I would expect the IESG to be interested in any new aspects this request brings up to the discussion we were already having on the p2p special names draft, and the usability and scalability of the process in RFC 6761.

> Abstract:
>   The Internet Domain Name System (DNS) defines a tree of names
>   starting with root, ".", immediately below which are top level
>   domain (TLD) names such as ".com" and ".us". In June 1999 RFC2606
>   reserved a small number of TLD names for use in documentation
>   examples, private testing, experiments, and other circumstances in
>   which it is desirable to avoid conflict with current or future
>   actual TLD names in the DNS.
>   There has been significant evolution of Internet engineering and
>   operation practices since RFC2606 was published. In February 2013
>   RFC6761 defined criteria and procedures for reserving a domain name
>   for special use, and established an IANA registry for such names.
>   This document reserves eight domain name labels for special use in
>   accordance with the criteria and procedures of RFC6761: localdomain,
>   domain, lan, home, host, corp, mail, and exchange.
>   It is important to note that TLD names may be reserved, in other
>   contexts, for policy, political, or other reasons that are distinct
>   from the IETF's concern with Internet engineering and operations.
>   This document reserves TLD names only for operational and
>   engineering reasons.
