Hexadecimal TLD's

I am sorry but I didn't agree with:

"0xff" (255 in hexadecimal) as the top-level domain can be
interpreted as IP addresses.

I don't know who had this "great" suggestion but it seems that this person 
don't had a look to already existing and "without technical problems" running 
TLD's. In this case ccTLD's. Some examples for hex ccTLD's: ac, be, ca, cc, cd 
and de

So I see no reason to refuse "hex" TLD's, even if they are builded with 2 
characters/numbers only. I am sure that there is no country which will have a 
digit in his ccTLD. Not now and not in future.

Best regards

Andreas Baumgart
