	Well, doing so would certainly break MX records, because BINDv9 
no longer tolerates in any way, shape, or form the pointing of MXes 
at CNAMEs.  While that might be fine for things like movies (where 
the only thing they probably care about is serving up the web page), 
that's certainly not going to do any good for anyone else who wants 
any other kind of service.
