What if there's no intention to use the domain for email?

I've become annoyed enough in the other direction, owning domains *only*
used for email and dealing with irate people insisting I'm
domain-squatting and must sell them the domain cheaply right now because
there's no A record for www.what.ever.

Functioning, correct and coherent DNS prior to registration, now that I
support whole-heartedly.
