I am not implying that this matter has any important practical impact.

I just think, and wanted to share, that it would be neater if there was 
a general definition in 1.6.1, as IMO that of "control of a domain" (or 
IP address) is not too obvious a notion. But maybe I am the only one who 
thinks this - if that's the case, no problem.
