And LLMNR is windows-only, mDNS is not supported by Windows, so the only
inter-operable way is DNS?  Are there any other name resolution systems?

Why shouldn't they be registered in a .local domain?  Are they not
intended to be only on the LAN?

I manually assigned an fc00::/7 address to a Windows workstation and it
still does not appear to be registered to the dDNS.  Are these also
considered banned from DNS?
