Not according to the RFC:s.

Given the use of "555" in the (North American) TV world, and the
regularity with which IETF defines specific example resources of
various sorts, one would almost expect there'd be "555"-equivalent
address spaces defined by the IETF already.

I assume it has been discussed and rejected. Can anyone enlighten us on why?

PS. It's quite obvious that it would be announced and point to HTTP
servers serving responses containing various evil things, I guess?
PPS. Didn't know Adobe made web browsers with remote connect clients in them. :)
