Care to enlighten me as to what those workarounds would be?
Also - why is it a registrar can do a CNAME only but we mere mortals can't? In fact documentation from Amazon (it is apparently their web store I've since learned) suggests doing it at registrar so I'll probably go that route but I'm wondering why it should work there but not on one of my delegated name servers.

You can ask your registrar if they can/will do this in the parent
"com." zone. I have seen ugliness of this type from either Network
Solutions or register.com before, not sure which.

we're sticklers for precise spelling.
