The IESG has received a request from an individual submitter to consider
the following document:
- 'Special-Use Domain Names'
  <draft-cheshire-dnsext-special-names-01.txt> as a Proposed Standard


   This document describes what it means to say that a DNS name is
   reserved for special use, when reserving such a name is appropriate,
   and the procedure for doing so.

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the mailing lists by 2011-02-14. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.
