it is an rfc, not a standard.  check out bcp 46. according to that, the
correct answer we are looking for would be hostmaster-billing at akamai.com.
both documents are out of date, and to suggest otherwise is irresponsible

the first click off the akamai root page is hardly "super sekret".  although
they are really sneaky about it.  its called 'support' and it is big and
bright and blue and right where you would expect it.  quite the outrage
