I agree any official documents should not refer to domain names.
However I have been surprised how many people in a poll done in NZ
(about the 2LD policy) did not know what a domain name was, but did
recognise it, when it was explained as basically a "website address"
(even though it is far more than that).

The .nz poll for those interested is at - only 27% of
respondents who use the internet knew what a domain name was.
