Dear Jari,

IMHO the initial question is to know if the string "IANA" is to be a 
reserved string associated to the Internet Technology Repository 
whatever the TLD. If yes the Internet Technology documented by which 
SDO (since as per RFC 6852 there might be several ones in 
competition). If not is only "" ? What about "" ?

As you know, the IUWG works on the support of CLASS "FL" 
(Free/Libre). Should we agree some common reservation about these 
names or strings?
FYI we plan to support a CLASS syntax as discussed by 
(in French).


PS. Alissa, I am not sure you answered my previous mail. It would 
help making sure that IN and FL CLASSes support names like "IANA.ORG" 
in the same manner.
