Well, no. I thought it wasn’t rewriting anything, but setting a future direction. (The backronym was cute or annoying, depending on your POV, but ultimately not that important.)

So the answer to “Why not actually use it where it’s technically suitable” is essentially “installed base”? 

I don’t mean to sound flippant— I’m just trying to understand the view that there’s a bigger obstacle to using .arpa than there is to asking ICANN for a root zone entry and engaging with all of the resulting complexities.
