hmmm... that's Most Interesting Karl, as yours truly had a discussion with
Jon about the "Moving issue" in The Very Process of getting
fernwood.mpk.ca.us registered (as the first entry in the .us domain) was
what would happen if it moved/relocated elsewhere was that:

just as one can file a mail forwarding request with the USPS when moving an
"equivalent" would be done in the .us domain with a CNAME RR that would
point to your new .us domain location... say,  for the sake of an
illustrative example:

fernwood.mpk.ca.us ==> fernwood.cambridge.ma.us
