well, so it's not explicitly denied in the current operations policy
things, so people may depend on it for some reason(s). They might have
turned on a service that depends on it, something not related to email or
web or other things. DNS is basic internet plumbing, messing with it
without LOTS of study is bound to bring out wierd uses. Especially where
there is no prohibition on this today, making an arbitrary limit tomorrow
is going to cause problems.
