Well, that is indeed a possibility, but RFC 2606 - the BCP involved  
in this specific case - does not state anywhere that people MUST use  
the domains it reserves in examples.

Therefore, to cover this particular case, such a blanket policy would  
have to be stated such that even vague recommendations in BCPs MUST  
be followed religiously, even if the document's author not only  
doesn't think that was the purpose of the document, but clearly  
states that wasn't the reason it's a BCP anyway.

Maybe the policy could also state a Doctrine Of IESG Infallibility,  
and just bypass the entire issue.

Dave.
