Microsoft has regularly used the fictitious company name Fabrikam Inc.
in demonstrations and on documentation for a number of years.  To avoid
unintended email being sent to legitimate users or excessive traffic to
legitimate websites, Microsoft registered the domain Fabrikam.com to use
in connection with the fictitious company name Fabrikam, Inc..
Microsoft does not object to the W3C use. 

 

However, I note that we already replaced fabrikam.com with example.com
in the W3C WS-A specs, so the only remaining use of fabrikam is within
path segments and namespace prefixes.

Surely, if the objective is a pedagogical one, the ideal selection is
example.edu?

 

Or if you want to lay down the law on the subject, example.gov?

	In addition to sub-domains, there is also example.org, and
example.net,
	as well as  .example (per RFC 2606).
	
	I wonder if TLD that came into existence after the RFC was
written like
	example.biz, example.info, example.info, example.coop,
example.aero,
	example.pro can be used too.
