How this relates to the discussion, I have no clue, but I am willing to go along in the hopes this will actually lead somewhere useful.  I am but a Mechanical Engineer, so I don't know a great deal about the inner-workings of the Internet.  But, I will tell you all I know about IN-ADDR.ARPA.

From what I understand, the Internet uses this domain to support gateway location and Internet address to host mapping.  The purpose of IN-ADDR.ARPA is to provide a method that is guaranteed to perform host address to host name mapping. Also, it makes it easier for queries to locate all gateways on a particular network in the Internet.

Now, please tell me how in Hades this was germane to our discussion.
