That is why my subtld-structure draft is suggesting that TLD profiles be  
downloaded at regular intervals (and at need) from a repository, in order  
to make it possible to add new TLDs or new registry-like domains under a  
TLD, and to prevent problems with old software. My drafts also suggest a  
rule-of-thumb fallback in case a TLD is unknown.
