Hopefully none of their 10 conflict with any of your 2000, and nobody

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

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:

$ORIGIN local.

@ 2D SOA 2005053100 300600 2419200 3600

                   MX      10
                   MX      10
                   MX      10
                   TXT     "v=spf1 mx"

                   NS      A      A      A      A      A

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