Experience with the Domain Name System (DNS) has shown that
there are a number of DNS zones all iterative resolvers and recursive
nameservers should automatically serve, unless configured otherwise.
RFC 4193 specifies that this should occur for D.F.IP6.ARPA. This
document extends the practice to cover the IN-ADDR.ARPA zones for RFC
1918 address space and other well known zones with similar characteristics.
Working Group Summary
The working group strong but not unanimous consensus. Discussion
arose around how exactly to seed the IANA registry that defines the
list of zones to locally serve.
There are name server implementations that already use the feature
described in this document.
Peter Koch is shepherd for this document.
