I've added SECURITY since we need something like it and this is the name
most people who have it now are using.
I've added ROUTING to do what TROUBLE is often used to do.
Since I agree with Randy than a minimum useful set seems ideal, I've added
a new section ("optional, less well known addresses") with NIC, WWW, NEWS,
LISTOWNER, TROUBLE (no longer "recommended", in favour of ROUTING and NOC),

I'll add INFO as a general contact point. SALES is outside our scope (this
is a technology document after all). Rather than FTP-ADMIN how about FTP?
I'll make FTP-ADMIN an "optional, less well known address".

Some of those choices are amazing to me, like ABUSE->SECURITY. I will add
ROOT to the less-well-known table. I briefly considered adding asNNNN but
I think ROUTING will serve adequately for the purpose of this document.
With this feedback, I believe the document is ready to go to Cynthia. I'll
send it to the OPS AD's, both of whom have said this thing is reasonable.
Remember that although this started on NANOG, that was because NANOG hosted
a discussion thread that inspired me to write this common knowledge down.
Once IETF gets it, the document's scope becomes international. Thus, there
will probably be some more addresses added in the first post-Cynthia rev.
