    You will never be able to own an official .home, .mail or .corp domain name or email address on the public internet.

    It means if you have machines called things like storage.home or buildserver.corp on your home or private business network, you can be sure no one will be able to buy domains like storage.home or buildserver.corp, thus sparing you the messy situation of client PCs accidentally connecting to the wrong box, depending on their DNS settings.

    It's bad news for phishers and other miscreants, and a relief for network managers...
