It's official: .corp, .home, .mail will never be top-level domains on the 'net

Because there are those (like home users) where such a setup may not be advised or possible (take me, I have a noip.me DDNS subscription, but I wouldn't dare the noip.me setup internally). There are also pure intranets (no external connections) where it would nonetheless be prudent to keep a DNS hierarchy set up, in which case it would help to have a placeholder TLD just in case (and by using an invalid one, it won't resolve from the outside).
