While I understand your sentiments, I don't think this would be overly
helpful.  This stupid ip6.int/ip6.arpa power play has been going on for
way too long, and we really should take the pragmatic way and just 
accept what is written in the RFC now (ip6.arpa), even if we don't like

Reopening that can of worms will just delay useful reverse DNS deployment
even further.
