I fully agree. In my opinion, when we promised "we will respect the
IANA name space", it clearly meant "we will not redelegate .com to
someone else than Verisign and we will not add .amazon if it is not in
the IANA root". Adding DNAME for non-existing TLD is not "an alternate
name space".

Also, do note a very important point in the Internet-Draft: Yeti does
not cherry-pick the TLD to delegate to AS112. We rely on a choice (the
special-use domain registry) already sanctioned by IETF and recorded
by IANA. Therefore, we will not have, inside Yeti, discussions about
"should we also delegate .belkin or not?"
