Since the IANA uses EPP to submit change requests to Verisign for implementation, and since the implementation ("RZM") has not suffered from rapid development in the past, I suspect (pragmatically speaking) this is a non-starter.

Yes. Which is why I think that some of this involves us[0] talking to
ICANN and explaining the reason / purpose for ALT, and playing nice.
Explaining that this is not usable as a further delegation (you cannot
register a usable *DNS* name under this), and it should (hopefully)
stop people "squatting" on labels that might otherwise be available as
future TLDs should help ease over some of the uneasiness.  Basically
saying "There's an upcoming problem over here. Here's a mitigation
option, we'd like to do $foo." and not "Mine! Mine! We can do $foo and
you can't stop us, mwahaahha".
