Should the phrasing be changed to mention reverse DNS domains or
should all mention of domains be taken out? The reverse DNS issue
was raised at the meeting.

It's worth noting that there is a separarte policy document for 
the "Policy for Reverse Address Delegation under in
the RIPE NCC Service Region" (ripe-244) which can be found at:


That document says that "LIRs should provide reverse delegation
corresponding to an assignment during the complete validity period 
of the assignment" but doesn't make an explicit mention of any 
charges that may be associated with the DNS service. Do people think
that any mention of reverse DNS delegations is necessary?
