I'm suprised it was not mentioned in the beginning of the discussion:

    Application Techniques for Checking and Transformation of Names

Abstract

   Many Internet applications have been designed to deduce top-level
   domains (or other domain name labels) from partial information.  The
   introduction of new top-level domains, especially non-country-code
   ones, has exposed flaws in some of the methods used by these
   applications.  These flaws make it more difficult, or impossible, for
   users of the applications to access the full Internet.  This memo
   discusses some of the techniques that have been used and gives some
   guidance for minimizing their negative impact as the domain name
   environment evolves.  This document draws summaries of the applicable
   rules together in one place and supplies references to the actual
   standards.
