It's not as clean as I'd like, certainly.  I was pushing up against the
draft submission deadlines and didn't get all the wording into place.

.internal is an unsigned TLD and is the GID.

I don't see where in 2.2.1 it says that though.

The later.  .zz is not delegated.  Again I'm not sure which sentence
you're referring to though.

[someone did note that one of my section names is incorrect as well and
referred to the wrong one]

Yep.  It's "Global Internet's DNS (GID)", per the document.

There are, unfortunately, more than one naming environments.  We've
known this for years with even /etc/hosts being different from the DNS,
and NIS coming along later, etc.  Nowdays, there are so many
split-systems with both internal and externally differing naming sets I
was trying to use something that included the world "global" to be
super-clear this is the "big one".
