The gTLD "otsuka", created sometime in the last 24 hours, appears to be the
first to use the wildcards described at

https://www.icann.org/news/announcement-2-2014-08-01-en  https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/name-collision-framework-30jul14-en.pdf

That is, it contains

*.otsuka.  3600  IN  A
*.otsuka.  3600  IN  TXT  "Your DNS configuration needs immediate attention see https://icann.org/namecollision"
*.otsuka.  3600  IN  SRV  10 10 0 your-dns-needs-immediate-attention.otsuka.
*.otsuka.  3600  IN  MX   10 your-dns-needs-immediate-attention.otsuka.

and the corresponding RRSIGs.

What do people think about this business? Is anyone taking specific precautions
to detect attempts to connect to
