it took several years before sizeof("label") <= sizeof("arpa") limit was

but speaking of surreal -- .museum (possessed of a label longer than arpa)
started on a desktop. the dag performance requirements for registry operators
are more than the contractual performance requirements for the .net and .com
operator. finding actionable harm in a restriction on zone data that restricts
only private persons who intentionally propose to offer an withdrawn hostname
semantic, and only through a few ports and single transport protocol, while
overlooking restrictions on general registry operators that have the effect of
restricting access to namespaces to tenants of, or implementors of, more
highly capitalized registry service platforms than nearly all prior operators,
for no discernable reason, is peculiar.
