Really, only the owners of the name space denoted by
"IDN ds.internic.net" should be assigning such FPIs.  It will not do
for just anybody to be assigning names in someone else's name space.

In your own name space you could name something belonging to someone
else (unless legal issues prevent), but that's different.
