Hopefully none of their 10 conflict with any of your 2000, and nobody
will have to go re-read RFC2826 just yet.....
I am not afraid of ICANN. They are predictable and fast as an iceberg.

Chinese governements are far less predictable but they try to be ICANN
compatible.

I am really afraid of Microsoft:

Last time they have broken "localhost" now they do it again with "local" and
what new toplevel domains next windows update will bring - not even Bill
Gates knows.

"local" did collide! What ever you answer for "*.local" will break their
directory services. The only reliable solution seems to be:

$TTL 2D
$ORIGIN local.

@ 2D SOA dns.cp.msft.net. msnhst.microsoft.com. 2005053100 300600 2419200 3600

                   NS      ns4.msft.net.
                   NS      ns5.msft.net.

ns1.msft.net.      A       207.46.245.230
ns2.msft.net.      A       64.4.25.30
ns3.msft.net.      A       213.199.144.151
ns4.msft.net.      A       207.46.66.75
ns5.msft.net.      A       207.46.138.20

I guess that would solve the "localhost" problem too - but it does not give
the right answer :)
