Submission + - ICANN considers using '' to tackle DNS namespace collisions ( 1

angry tapir writes: As the number of top-level domains undergoes explosive growth, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is studying ways to reduce the risk of traffic intended for internal network destinations ending up on the Internet via the Domain Name System. Proposals in a report produced on behalf of ICANN include preventing .mail, .home and .corp ever being Internet TLDs; allowing the forcible de-delegation of some second-level domains in emergencies; and returning as an IP address in the hopes that sysadmins will have a WTF moment and Google it.
