    There is work being done in the IETF to create such a private
    use TLD.

Where? Also, this may bring on a jurisdiction issue with ICANN/DNSO. It is
the ICANN that is recommending new TLDs to the DOC, not the IETF. In order
tfor that effort to comply with WIP process, it should make attempts to
surface within relevent ICANN activity as well. Otherwise, ICANN doesn't
know about it and can't make appropriate recommendations. I'm very much
involved in that area and they are invisible to every one, in the DNSO. This
effects the open/transparent process and if they don't want to catch a LOT
of political flak (consider this fair-warning), they need to widen the
visibility of their effort. This effects ICANN policy directly and IETF
isn't a policy org. They are a PSO, not a DNSO.


        The IETF work predates much of ICANN & DNSo work. Clearly
        there has been too narrow a focus if the DNSo & ICANN do
        not believe that others have considered the impact of entry points
        in the DNS and that they have exclusive understanding of the 
        ramifications of controlling this space.

        See RFC 2606
