Ed and I just submitted a new version of our private-use TLD draft. 


This draft has substantial more information than the first draft. It explains that a private-use namespace does not exist, why it is needed, and how a namespace aligned with the user-assigned alpha-2 code elements in the ISO-3166-1 standard can be used as private-use namespace.

It contains plenty of examples of how user-assigned code elements are used in the field, including other ISO standards, the UN, UNICODE, CAB/forum, and the IETF itself.

This new version came about after fruitful discussions with peers inside and outside the IETF. Most discussions were productive. This has lead to the removal of the advice/example to use ZZ, as it was distracting from the point of the draft: these two-letter top level domains are available for private-use.
