Well, I was asking about your _particular_ preference, which seemed
rather clear from your use of the word "crap". Why does it matter (in
_your_ opinion) if the target of the "www" CNAME owns records of more
types than just A and/or AAAA?
Also, have you considered the forward/reverse ambiguity that arises when
multiple owner names resolve to the same address? To which of those
names does the PTR point?
