I agree that it is a problem, but not one specific to ULAs.

Indeed, it's the dont-publish-unreachables's draft space... but that one never reached consensus or thus publication.

Right. And, while I personally agree with the don't-publish-unreachables concept, it has been a controversial one one in the DNS community. It is not fair to use the ULA document as a path to standardization of that concept, when we don't know if the people who objected to its publication in other fora are involved here.

The whole question of how/if to handle local addressing in the DNS is a hairy one, and one that it isn't the IPv6 WG's job to solve.

This document has already been reviewed by the IESG, and there is one discuss outstanding (from Ted Hardie). So, we need to be conservative at this point regarding what (if any) changes we make to the document. If we make substantial technical changes, the document will at least have to return to IETF LC and be re-reviewed by the IESG. We cannot, in good conscience slip in controversial DNS wording into the document at this point in the process.
