I try to get the IDNAbis folks to finally nail this <toplabel> beast.
After "at least one dot" killed by 2821bis - currently blocked by an
appealed DISCUSS [1} - the <toplabel> update  is the second point
in RFC 3696 that didn't survive the IETF process. Fortunately it is
also the last point relevant for SPF, we can simply pull the RFC 3696
reference in a future 4408bis.
Still unclear is the minimal length of a <toplabel>, SPF picked one,
USEFOR picked two. SPF got an RFC number, the approved USEFOR RFC on
standards track is blocked by a missing normative reference, SNAFU.
