This document specifies the behavior that is expected from the Domain
Name System with regard to DNS queries for names ending with
'.home.arpa.' and designates this domain as a special-use domain
name. 'home.arpa.' is designated for non-unique use in residential
home networks.  The Home Networking Control Protocol (HNCP) is
updated to use the 'home.arpa.' domain instead of '.home'.

This document is a product of the Home Networking Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
