EB> IMO, dns entries should not be ambiguous.

There's nothing inherently *ambiguous* about wildcards or the resource 
record sets that are synthesized from them.  Wildcards are just one form 
of server-side aliases.  (They alias together all of the 
not-otherwise-explicitly specified labels.)  That doesn't cause 
ambiguity, per se.
