[alac] Wildcards

For your information,

The ICANN BoD mailing list is very busy discussing issues related to the VRSG Sitefinder "service". The initial action has been, as already posted by Thomas, a request to voluntarily suspend the service. Following the statement of the IAB, and individual comments from the IETF community, I am expecting (but take it only as a personal opinion) a stronger position in the future.

An interesting scenario has been also evaluated. Suppose that some company is unhappy about VRSG returning something different than NXDOMAIN for a name confusingly similar to an existing trademark, and gets a judge to oblige VRSG to reply accordingly, the practice of dealing with different names in different ways would be openly in violation of the protocol.
