Re: New Internet Draft on registering IDNs

> how to run zones

I think it would be useful to distinguish between registries and
private zones.  A private zone does not accept registrations from the
public; the names in a private zone and all its subzones belong to the

A registry accepts registrations from the public, so its zone contains
names (and delegates subzones) belonging to organizations/individuals
unrelated to the registry (except by the registration agreement).

restaurants do not apply to homes.  Although both are privately owned,
one is considered a public place because the general public is invited
