and later that day, someone pointed out

someone at internic popped in a day later and said they'd all be
removed.  from poking at a copy of the edu zone file circa then, i can
"derive" a long list of names that have been revoked.

i'd suggest you also read domain policy, but the signal to noise ratio
there makes this list seem like standing right next a speaker stack at
a ministry concert in madison square garden.  without earplugs.  :)
