i don't think (3) is right.  when we started AS112 we could have assigned
these zones to servers in private address space, or to servernames like "."
or addresses like or  we chose a real netblock because
we wanted this to be a real service.  if an enclave can't do (1) or (2)
then i think i'd prefer to be able to measure their traffic as part of
this "whole internet" thing.  also, a recommendation such as (3) creates a
new kind of private address space, which really should be beyond our powers.
