Not that I really like mixing public lists, private lists, personal 
communication and a JIRA issue sitting untouched at
https://issues.apache.org/jira//browse/INFRA-6973 ...
but the .eu registry at http://www.eurid.eu/ says it is registered in 
the name of Mark (even though it may be in quarantine; often on eurid.eu 
I see that domains are considered registered until the last day of the 
month in which they expire).

Anyway, agreeing on one standard is good. But letting domains expire as 
a policy is very bad, since we have plenty of links to apachecon.eu 
from, for example, blog posts. And this would result in our official 
blog linking to a spam/whatever site if the domain is let expire. So I 
would prefer that the domain is renewed or redeemed, set to auto-renew 
and then redirected to whatever convention we agree upon.
