I have been having a discussion on NANOG about possible problems with  
new Top Level Domains coming out of ICANN. It seems like additional  
TLD domains, beyond
just the 4 in RFC 2606, should be either reserved or blocked.  
Suggestions include .local (apparently
used heavily by Microsoft), .internal, as well as maybe translations  
of .test .example .invalid .localhost into
other languages / character sets.

I am curious as to  whether others feel like this is a potential
problem to be addressed (and, not least, whether there is a better  
mail list for this discussion).
