I think that placing such critical domain references under .INT is a
reasonable idea.

However, RIPE isn't a treaty organization and the rules for new .INT names
is pretty specific.  And IANA is rather careful about following the rules.  

Jon Postel's directive is that any proposal needs to have very precise
rules, so the first step in getting groups like RIPE authorized under .INT
is to write a set of rules that will mechanically determine who is authorized.

Perhaps a place to start is by qualifying any organization that has
administrative or operations responsibilities directly assigned by IANA.

Actually, IMAO, the proper place to start is by stringing up whomeever
thought it would be a good idea to make .NET commercial by the balls,
and using it for what it was designed for.
