As I said, the measure may or may not be feasible - in fact, given that the domains are not registered, it most certainly is not feasible.

You are of course right. The problem posed by sitefinder in its previous form has been discussed already, and our bind / djbdns resolvers have been patched appropriately to ignore the aberrant behavior introduced by verisign.

There ends the operational impact of verisign's decision, till such time as they revive sitefinder, and till such time as resolver patches in existence are modified if necessary to cope with the new edition of sitefinder.
