Thinking about it a little more, what about the common use of
'localhost.localdomain' for 127.0.0.1 in most versions of *nix? I can
just imagine the chaos that registering a *.localdomain TLD will cause.
Methinks it is time to update RFC2606 to reflect common practices before
the new ICANN policies take effect.
