So would it work to amend the definition of ISN and of Registered Domain Name to read as follows?

Internal Server Name: A Server Name that is an Unregistered Domain Name.

Registered Domain Name: A Domain Name that has been registered with an ICANN-assigned  Domain Name Registrar.

[Unregistered Domain Name: A Domain Name that is not a Registered Domain Name.]

This sounds good to me, with Ryan's caveat taken note of. The alternate domain names space has multiple competing instances of the same TLD, and they will no doubt clash with the new ICANN ones. I think we have to be ICANN-only.
