Now that .NET is irrevocably a commercial top level domain, perhaps
organizations like RIPE should look at moving critical infrastructure
services (not the web server) to another TLD. Perhaps it should be
whois.ripe.int? Since the IPv6 equivalent of in-addr.arpa lives in .INT
this makes sense to me.
