Folks -

It's either time to put a stake through the heart of this DNS vampire 
that rises from the grave every 6 months, or to push it for 
publication.  Given that in 8 years it has yet to gain enough traction 
for publication, perhaps we de-adopt the draft back into the caring 
hands of its author?  E.g. - back to draft-kumari-something.  Or 
contribute to some flowers for a final burial?

In any event, having looked at this for the first time thanks to the 
announcement, and reading the proposed use, why isn't this reserving 
something like "%ALT" or some other string containing an illegal DNS 
character?

Later, Mike
