Well, that is indeed a possibility, but RFC 2606 - the BCP involved
in this specific case - does not state anywhere that people MUST use
the domains it reserves in examples.
Therefore, to cover this particular case, such a blanket policy would
have to be stated such that even vague recommendations in BCPs MUST
be followed religiously, even if the document's author not only
doesn't think that was the purpose of the document, but clearly
states that wasn't the reason it's a BCP anyway.
Maybe the policy could also state a Doctrine Of IESG Infallibility,
and just bypass the entire issue.
