RFC 2606[1] reserves several TLDs that may never be registered for public

Again, I think that tracking issues are orthogonal to this ticket. Anyone who
sets a hostname *manually* is already unique. If that's something to be
concerned about, then it's better to solve that at whatever layers reveal this
information.

Yeah, I mostly just want Fedora for the proper noun. Since it serves no
functional difference, I don't care much. After the conversation we've had so
far, I *do* think we're more or less agreed that we want the longer "Fedora"
rather than "fed" prefix though.
