Like Paul Hoffman, I read the it the opposite way.  The draft says
about as clearly as it can that foo.alt is for names that are handled
completely outside the DNS.  The IAB draft says that is where
you put names that are handled within the DNS but with quirks.  I
don't see any conflict.

I suppose it would be good for the draft to reference the IAB statement to
say that's something else, not what .alt is about.
