I wanted to draw your attention to an Internet Draft we’ve developed,
its goal is to formally deprecate a number of historic “.int”
domains that were designated for Internet infrastructure purposes
decades ago and appear for all intents and purposes obsolete. After some
limited consultation on developing the approach so far, it would be
useful to get some additional eyes on it so we have greater confidence
there is nothing we’ve missed.

Datatracker link: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-davies-int-historic/

It’s a short document, but at its heart we’ve identified the
following domains that are referenced in places but seem to be obsolete:

            atma.int, ip4.int, nsap.int, rdi.int, reg.int, tpc.int

Most of these are not delegated in the int zone any longer, but there
are lingering references to them.

Thanks in advance for any insight, and apologies if you get this message
in duplicate,
