RE: [wg-b] Reality checks [the grateful dead(hits)]

I would not be concerned with the domain name oreo-dories.com for a website
about oreo dories. The second and third examples do not involve a second
level domain using the oreo string, so they are not relevant to the
discussion at hand. (That aside, neither are of concern.)
