I hope/assume that everyone knows/understands that we do not accept
such examples in RFCs. We want them to be of the form:
or some such.
See ID-NITs at http://www.ietf.org/ID-nits.html
o Addresses used in examples should prefer use of fully qualified
domain names to literal IP addresses, and prefer use of example
fqdn's such as foo.example.com to real-world fqdn's
See RFC 2606 for example domain names that can be used.
There is also a range of IP addresses set aside for this purpose.
These are 192.0.2.0/24 (see RFC 3330). Private addressess that
would be used in the real world should be avoided in examples.
