Also, even if "Tier 0/1/2" usually denotes the registry instead of the domain or zone, we should speak of ENUM Tier 1 domains, just as we - on purpose - say "TLD" instead of "Domain". The term "delegated" in (b), while technically perfectly OK, might undergo the same polishing applied to (a). > * the Test Box Hosts, > - * the operators of the root servers and TLD servers, > + * the operators of the root servers, TLD and ENUM domain servers, > * the Internet community in general.

Unrelated to the proposed change: how can a TB be "located inside a TLD"? > 3.1. Definitions > > - a.

As stated above, we should keep the distinction of TLD and ENUM Tier 1. -Peter PS: Thinking of implementation, the domain overview page is sorted alphabetically, giving preference to the e164.arpa domains right now. Maybe some grouping of ccTLD and e164.arpa (where appropriate) could increase legibility.
