Technical Summary

   The Special-Use Domain Names IANA registry policy defined in RFC 6761
   has been shown through experience to present unanticipated
   challenges.  This memo presents a list, intended to be comprehensive,
   of the problems that have been identified.  In addition it reviews
   the history of Domain Names and summarizes current IETF publications
   and some publications from other organizations relating to Special-
   Use Domain Names.

Working Group Summary
   This document was the result of a decision in DNSOP to attempt to characterize the 
   problems we actually face with special use names before attempting to analyze any of 
   several proposals and contending beliefs about how to resolve them. The document has 
   been a considerable time in the making but has WG consensus as a list of the relevant 
    issues and challenges. As such, it can reasonably be the basis for future work in this area, 
    whether it's within scope/charter for DNSOP or not.

Document Quality

    The document summarizes many discussions and documents across 
    DNSOP, the wider IETF, and other concerned communities to date.
