While that's the pedantically correct answer, in practice it doesn't 
work well when your users complain "Google DNS deals with it, why don't 
you?" Your users don't care what happens to people somewhere else, they 
just want to get their work done.

Google understands that there are lots of broken DNS configurations out 
there, but their users don't want to hear that it's someone else's fault.
