Johnny, you can write a program that can do anything deterministic.
This mailing list happens to be about BIND.  If you can make BIND do
this, then I feel I should publicly apologize, and make your BIND
solution known to as many people as possible.

RFCs are just that, requests for comments.  If you think you know
better than the writers of the RFCs, please do comment to the IETF.
However, the RFCs usually tend to very well thought-out.  I do NOT
think that standards should be ignored just to placate monopolistic
proprietary solutions whose avowed policy is to destroy standards for
profit.  That way lies chaos.  Chaos is usually somebody's way of
making profit for himself/herself/itself only.
