FWIW, "domain suffix" is used in RFC 3263, 3588, 4183 and 4620. In none

for a definition; "a domain name that is intended to be used as a suffix
of a complete domain name" seems to be the implied definition.
A pity that Verisign has started using it differently.
Please see the email I wrote that you responded to: I don't understand
the (now ongoing) reference to VeriSign's supposed use of, let alone
redefinition of, this term. Can we drop it, please?
