Throughout the document, when it says:

example.org, ...

It should say:

example.org, example.edu, ...


Should mention `example.edu` as one of the reserved names as well, since IANA is doing that according to Kim Davies. The 6125bis draft uses it in some examples.
While 'example.edu' is indeed operated by IANA, it does appear neither in the "special-use domain names" registry of IANA nor in RFC 6761.
