which proposes to "sink" special-use TLD (may be you've heard of RFC
6761 "special use domain names"?) using AS 112, will expire soon. From
the discussions, the two biggest issues were the "governance"
difficulties (adding DNAME records in the root...) and the privacy
issues (sending .local requests to random AS 112 operators).

It seems there is not enough interest for this work, so I was thinking
of just documenting the current state of the discussion, in case other
people rediscover the problem. May be an individual RFC?

This is tricky. We want DNS resolvers to not send these onto the
internet. But by adding delegations in the root to AS112, aren't
we making it more likely that the queries leak further onto the net?
