The problem isn't with names *below* the CNAME, it's with other records with
the same name as the CNAME. In particular, the SOA record for domain.com.
You would only be able to do this if you could put the CNAME record in the
parent domain, instead of delegating domain.com to your own server.
But do any domain registrars support that option?
