Subject: Tech overview: Why the switch to common TLD's in example?

Sorry if I missed some explicit discussion on this, but I noticed in
this draft, the example web site names were changed.  "AirlineInc.com"
was changed to "airline.example.com" and "CarRentalInc.com" was changed
to "cars.example.com".  I don't think this was a good change to make.

The new example sites are now sharing the same top-level domain name
"example.com".  While it's true that SAML will work in such an
environment, it is not a requirement that sites share the same TLD and
we may mislead/confuse readers.  The real power is our ability to SSO
across systems in *different* TLD's.

I recommend switching back to unique TLD's.
