All this discussion is fun, but what about:

  1.  Bind implementation enforcing character set restrictions
      should be observed by system configurators.

  2.  DNS delegations are just that.  Businesses name entities
      within their naming context in a manner that suits their
      business purpose.  Within their own context (and the RFCs)
      a business sets its own naming rules.

Note that this does not rule out being cooperative and sensitive
to the needs of others.  But that is the prerogative of the
owner of the delegated naming context.  That is the essence
of "delegation" in DNS.
