I'm well aware of how IN-ADDR.ARPA is used.  I also know that the equivalent for IPv6 is IP6.ARPA, as defined in RFC 3152.  Addresses of the form "IN-ADDR.TLD", for any TLD other than ARPA, have nothing whatsoever to do with IP address allocation under any Internet protocol, and are worthless except to the extent that gullible people can be conned into thinking they have some sort of Internet protocol purpose that gives them value.

There is no such thing as IPv8, as far as I'm aware.
