Okay. I am in the process of fixing my own internic record (I use it so
rarely, it now points at an address I don't have :< ) ... but it seems
like a good idea, we should take on all 3.

For installfest.net we should offer subhost entries which are A-record
and MX record only to point at the sites of various installfest related
efforts.  In other words anytime somebody begs us for one of the sites,
assuming they really are involved in installfesting, they should just
get a spot as <applicable name>.installfest.net.  They get to maintain
their own stuff though.

And yes, I expect sometimes this means they will end up broken or down
sometimes and some dope will think that was us.  Life's tough.

(I am NSI/internic ID:  HS439 by the way.)
