Many thanks to the authors for making what I expected to be a dry terminology
document into an adventure of discovery.

context that distinguishes an ordered list of labels that is a domain name from
your garden variety ordered lists of labels? (or is the point of this that they
cannot be distinguished?)

standard at the time of this writing, ..."
