To be slightly pedantic, it was a proposal to make a policy decision that the
name SINK.ARPA should not be made to exist by those responsible for
administration of the ARPA zone as described in 3172.
The proposal did not seek to update the behaviour of protocols or applications
to treat SINK.ARPA any differently from any other name in the DNS.
